New front-end tool to manage SELinux

OSNews reports SELinux Policy Editor 2.0 Released. “In the past, SELinux has been critized for being too dificult to configure. To solve this, the SELinux policy editor was created: A GUI-oriented editor with a simplified policy description language (ala Apparmor). According to the announcement, this new version includes a much improved user interface and some improvements to the “Policy description language”.

Very cool. Security-Enhanced Linux is the next-generation security implementation beyond UNIX users and groups, individual file permissions and general security policies of firewalling unwanted traffic and requiring logins. However, I've found it difficult to grasp at first, and surely difficult to master. A friendly front-end GUI tool to manage SELinux is welcomed.
