The DHCP server in version 4.0.x of the ISC DHCP Distribution supports
DHCPv6 in addition to DHCP for IPv4.

Several new options have been added to the dhcpd executable, which are
documented in the man page. Several changes have been made to the
configuration file as well, which are also documented in the man
pages.

There are a number of DHCPv6 limitiations and features missing in this
release, which will be addressed shortly:

20
- Only Solaris, Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD are supported.

- DHCPv6 includes human-readable text in status code messages. These
  should be configurable, and probably localized via gettext() or the
  like.

- The "host-identifier" option is limited to a simple token.

- Dynamically allocated leases do not respond to Confirm messages.

- The client and server can only operate DHCPv4 or DHCPv6 at a time,

  not both.  To use both protcols simultaneously, two instances of the

ISC DHCP now uses standard GNU configure for installation. Please
review the output of "./configure --help" to see what options are
available.

The system has only been tested on Linux, FreeBSD, and Solaris, and 
may not work on other platforms. Please report any problems and 
suggested fixes to <dhcp-users@isc.org>.

- DHCPv6 is now the default. You can disable DHCPv6 support using the
  "--disable-dhcpv6" flag when you run the configure script.

72
73
74
75
- An internal database inconsistency bug was repaired where the server
  would segfault if a client attempted to renew a lease that had been
  loaded from persistent storage.

76
77
78
79
- 'request' and 'also request' syntaxes have been added to accomodate
  the DHCPv6 client configuration.  'send dhcp6.oro' is no longer
  necessary.

80
81
82
83
- Bug fixed where configuration file parsing did not work with 
  zero-length options; this made it impossible to set the 
  rapid-commit option.

		     Changes since 3.1.0 (NEW FEATURES)

- DHCPv6 Client and Server protocol support.  Use '-6' to run the daemons
  as v6-only.  Use '-4' to run the daemons as v4-only (default.  There is
  no support currently for both.

- Server support for multiple IA_NA options, containing at most one
  IAADDR option.

- Client support for one IA_NA option, containing any number of IAADDR
  options.

- Server support for the DHCPv6 Information-request message.

- Inappropriate unicast DHCPv6 messages sent to the server are now
  discarded, and this has rearchitected the IO system slightly.

- The DHCPv6 server DUID defaults to type 1, is persistently stored in
  the leases database, and can be over-ridden (either completely, or by
  specifying type 1 or type 2).

- The server only uses Rapid-Commit if it has been configured with the
  Rapid-Commit option and the client requests it.

- DDNS support. We now update AAAA records in the same place we would
  update A records, if we have an IPv6 address. We also generate IP6.ARPA
  style names for PTR records if we're dealing with an IPv6 address.  Both
  A and AAAA updates are done using the same 'fqdn.' virtual option space
  (although the DHCPv4 FQDN and DHCPv6 FQDN options are formatted
  differently, they both use the same code here).

- The Linux dhclient-script attempts to set and remove assigned addresses,
  and to configure /etc/resolv.conf from nameserver and domain name
  configurations.  It can be extended to configure other parameters.

- Initial DHCPv6 lease support.

- The IO system now tracks all local IP addresses, so that the DHCP
  applications (particularly the dhcrelay) can discern between what frames
  were transmitted to it, and what frames are being carried through it which
  it should not intercept.

205
206
207
208
209
			Changes since 3.1.0rc1

- The parse warning that 'deny dyanmic bootp;' must be configured for
  failover protected subnets was removed.

215
216
217
218
219
220
221
222
			Changes since 3.1.0b2

- Failover rebalance events no longer play ping pong with round errors
  (moving leases between free and back to backup where there are an
  odd number of leases).

- The 'pool' log line has been split into two messages, one before the
  rebalance run, and one after.

- Any queued BNDACKs are transmitted before transmitting new BNDUPDs.
  This enforces the correct sequence of events for the remote server
  processing these messages.

223
			Changes since 3.1.0b1
224

225
226
227
- Fixed a bug that caused OMAPI clients to freeze when opening lease
  objects.

228
229
230
231
232
233
- A new server config option "fqdn-reply" specifies whether the server
  should send out option 81 (FQDN).  Defaults to "on".  If set to "off",
  the FQDN option is not sent, even if the client requested it.  This is
  needed because some clients misbehave otherwise.  Thanks to Christof Chen
  at Allianz.

234
235
236
- Allow trace output files (-tf option) to be overwritten, rather than
  crashing dhcpd if the file already exists

237
238
239
- A bug was fixed that caused dhcpd to segfault if a pool was declared
  outside the scope of a subnet in dhcpd.conf.

240
241
242
- Some uninitialized values were repaired in dhcpleasequery.c that
  caused the server to abort.

243
244
245
246
- A new server config option, 'do-reverse-updates', has been added
  which causes the server to abstain from performing updates on PTR
  records.  Thanks to a patch from Christof Chen at Allianz.

247
248
249
- A bug was repaired in subencapsulation support, where spaces separated
  by empty spaces would not get included.

250
251
252
- A bug in dhclient was repaired which caused it to send parameter request
  lists of 55 bytes in length no matter how long the declared PRL was.

253
254
255
- 'dhcp.c(3953): non-null pointer' has been repaired.  This fixes a flaw
  wherein the DHCPv4 server may ignore a configured server-identifier.

256
257
258
- A flaw in failover startup sequences was repaired that sometimes left
  the primary DHCP server's pool rebalance schedules unscheduled.

259
260
261
- Corrected a flaw that broke encapsulated spaces included due to presence
  on the parameter request list.

262
263
264
			Changes since 3.1.0a3

- Some spelling fixes.
265

266
267
268
269
270
			Changes since 3.1.0a2

- A bug was fixed where attempting to permit leasequeries results in a
  fatal internal error, "Unable to find server option 49".

271
272
273
- A bug was fixed in dhclient rendering the textual output form of the
  domain-search option syntax.

274
275
276
277
278
			Changes since 3.1.0a1

- A bug in the FQDN universe that added FQDN codes to the NWIP universe's
  hash table was repaired.

279
280
281
282
283
- The servers now try harder to transmit pending binding updates when
  entering normal state.

- UPDREQ/UPDREQALL handling was optimized - it no longer dequeues and
  requeues all pending updates.  This should reduce the number of spurious
284
285
286
287
  'xid mismatch' log messages.

- An option definition referencing leak was fixed, which resulted in early
  termination of dhclient upon the renewal event.

303
304
- Some default hash table sizes were tweaked, some upwards, some downwards.
  3.1.0a1's tables resulted in a reduction in default server memory use.
  The new selected values provide more of a zero sum (increasing the size
  of tables likely to be populated, decreasing the size of tables unlikely).

- Lease structures appear in three spearate hashes: by IP address, by UID,
  and by hardware address.  One type of table was used for all three, and
  improvements to IP address hashing were applied to all three (so UID and
  hardware addresses were treated like 4-byte integers).  There are now two
  types of tables, and the uid/hw hashes use functions more appropriate
  to their needs.

- The max-lease-misbalance percentage no longer causes scheduled rebalance
  runs to be skipped: it still governs the schedule, but every scheduled
  run will attempt balance.

305
306
- A segfault bug in recursive encapsulation support has been corrected.

307
308
309
310
311
312
313
			Changes since 3.0 (New Features)

- A workaround for certain STSN servers that send a mangled domain-name
  option was introduced for dhclient.  The client will now accept corrupted
  server responses, if they contain a valid DHCP_MESSAGE_TYPE (OFFER, ACK,
  or NAK).  The server will continue to not accept corrupt client packets.

314
- Support for 'reserved' (pseudo-static) and BOOTP leases via failover
315
  was introduced.
316
317
318
319

- Support for adding, removing, and managing class and subclass statements
  via OMAPI.

320
321
322
- The failover implementation was updated to comply with revision 12 of
  the protocol draft.

323
324
325
- 'make install' now creates the initial zero-length dhcpd.leases file if
  one does not already exist on the system.

326
327
- RFC3942 compliance, site-local option spaces start at 224 now, not 128.

328
329
330
- The Load Balance Algorithm was misimplemented.  The current implementation
  matches RFC 3074.

331
332
- lcase() and ucase() configuration expressions have been added which adjust
  their arguments from upper to lower and lower to upper cases respectively.
333
  Thanks to a patch from Albert Herranz.
334

335
336
- The dhclient 'reject ...;' statement, which rejects leases given by named
  server-identifiers, now permits address ranges to be specified in CIDR
337
  notation.  Thanks to a patch from David Boyce.

343

347
348
- The subnet-mask option is now supplied by default, but at lowest
  priority.  This helps a small minority of clients that provide parameter
  request lists, but do not list the subnet-mask option because they were
  designed to interoperate with a server that behaves in this manner.

- The FQDN option is similarly supplied even if it does not appear on the
  parameter request list, but not to the exclusion of options that do
  appear at the parameter request list.  Up until now it had ultimate
  priority over the client's parameter request list.

349
- Varying option space code and length bit widths (8/16/32) are now
David Hankins's avatar

350
  supported.  This is a milestone in achieving RFC 3925 "VIVSO" and
351
352
  DHCPv6 support.

353
354
355
356
- A new common (server or client) option, 'db-time-format local;', has
  been added which prints the local time in /var/db/dhcpd.leases rather
  than UTC.  Thanks to a patch from Ken Lalonde.

357
358
359
- Some patches to improve DHCP Server startup speed from Andrew Matheson
  have been incorporated.

363
364
365
366
367
368
369
370
371
372
- Failover pairs now implement 'MAC Affinity' on leases moving from the
  active to free states.  Leases that belonged to the failover secondary
  are moved to BACKUP state rather than FREE upon exiting EXPIRED state.
  If lease rebalancing must move leases, it tries first to move leases
  that belong to the peer in need.

- The server no longer sends POOLREQ messages unless the pool is severely
  misbalanced in the peer's favor (see 'man dhcpd.conf' for more details).

- Pool rebalance events no longer happen upon successfully allocating a
  lease.  Instead, they happen on a schedule.  See 'man dhcpd.conf' for the
  min-balance and max-balance statements for more information.

373
374
375
- The DHCP Relay Agent Information Option / Link Selection Sub-Option
  is now supported.  (See RFC3527 for details).

376
377
378
379
380
381
- A new DDNS related server option, update-conflict-detection, has been
  added.  If this option is enabled, dhcpd will perform normal DHCID
  conflict resolution (the default).  If this option is disabled, it will
  instead trust the assigned name implicitly (removing any other bindings
  on that name).  This option has not been made available in dhclient.

382
383
384
385
386
- In those cases where the DHCP software manufactures an IP header (to
  transmit via bpf, lpf, etc), the IP TTL the software selects has been
  increased from 16 to 128.  This is intended to match Microsoft Windows
  DHCP Client behaviour, to increase compatibility.

387
388
389
390
391
392
393
394
395
396
- 'ignore client-updates;' now has behaviour that is different from
  'deny client-updates;'.  The client's request is not truly ignored,
  rather it is encouraged.  Should this value be configured, the server
  updates DNS as though client-updates were set to 'deny'.  That is, it
  enters into DNS whatever it is configured to do already, provided it is
  configured to.  Then it sends a response to the client that lets the
  client believe it is performing client updates (which it will), probably
  for a different name.  In essence, this lets the client do as it will,
  ignoring this aspect of their request.

397
398
399
- Support for compressed 'domain name list' style DHCP option contents, and
  in particular the domain search option (#119) was added.

400
- The DHCP LEASEQUERY protocol as defined in RFC4388 is now implemented.

  LEASEQUERY lets you query the DHCP server for information about a lease,
  using either an IP address, MAC address, or client identifier.  Thanks
  to a patch from Justin Haddad.

405
406
407
408
- DHCPD is now RFC2131 section 4.1 compliant (broadcast to all-ones ip and
  ethernet mac address) on the SCO platform specifically without any strange
  ifconfig hacks.  Many thanks go to the Kroger Co. for donating the
  hardware and funding the development.

414
415
- A new common configuration executable statement, execute(), has been
  added.  This permits dhcpd or dhclient to execute a named external
  program with command line arguments specified from other configuration
  language.  Thanks to a patch written by Mattias Ronnblom, gotten to us
  via Robin Breathe.

416
417
418
419
420
- A new dhcp server option 'adaptive-lease-time-threshold' has been added
  which causes the server to substantially reduce lease-times if there are
  few (configured percentage) remaining leases.  Thanks to a patch submitted
  from Christof Chen.

421
422
423
- Encapsulated option spaces within encapsulated option spaces is now
  formally supported.

424
425
426
427
428
			Changes since 3.0.6rc1

- supersede_lease() now requeues leases in their respective hardware
  address hash bucket.  This mirrors client identifier behaviour.

431
432
433
- Assorted fixes for broken network devices:  Packet length is now
  determined from the IP header length field to finally calculate the
  UDP payload length, because some NIC drivers return more data than

434
  they actually received.
435
436
437

- UDP packets are now stored in aligned data structures.

438
439
- A logic error in omapi interface code was repaired that might result in
  incorrectly indicating 'up' state when any flags were set, rather than
440
441
  specifically the INTERFACE_REQUESTED flag.  Thanks to a patch from
  Jochen Voss which got to us via Andrew Pollock at Debian.
442

443
444
- A reference leak on binding scopes set by ddns updates was repaired.

445
- A memory leak in the minires_nsendsigned() function call was repaired.
446
  Effectively, this leaked ~176 bytes per DDNS update.
447

448
449
450
451
452
453
454
- In the case where an "L2" DHCP Relay Agent (one that does not set giaddr)
  was directly attached to the same broadcast domain as the DHCP server,
  the RFC3046 relay agent information option was not being returned to the
  relay in the server's replies.  This was fixed; the dhcp server no longer
  requires the giaddr to reply with relay agent information.  Note that
  this also improves compatibility with L2 devices that "intercept" DHCP
  packets and expect relay agent information even in unicast (renewal)
455
456
457
458
459
  replies.  Thanks to a patch from Pekka Silvonen.

- A bug was fixed where the BOOTP header 'sname' field had a value, the
  copy written to persistent storage was actually the contents of the
  'file' field.
460

461
462
463
- A bug was fixed where the nwip virtual option space was referencing
  the fqdn option's virtual option space's option cache.

464
465
466
467
- Timestamp parsing errors that indicated missing "minutes" fields rather
  than the actually missing "seconds" fields have been repaired thanks to
  a patch from Kevin Steves.

468
469
470
- A grammar error in the dhclient.8 manpage was repaired thanks to a patch
  from Chris Wagner.

- Some bugs were fixed in the 'emergency relay agent options hologram'
  which is used to retain relay agent option contents from when the
  client was in INIT or REBIND states.  This should solve problems where
  relay agent options were not echoed from the server, even when giaddr
  was set.

- The server's "by client-id" and "by hardware address" hash table lists
  are now sorted according to the preference to re-allocate that lease to
  returning clients.  This should eliminate pool starvation problems
  arising when "INIT" clients were given new leases rather than presently
  active ones.

  dhclient-script with the 'EXPIRE' state should it receive a NAK in
  response to a REQUEST.  The client now iterates the PREINIT state
  after the EXPIRE state, so that interfaces that might be configured
  'down' can be brought back 'up' and initialized.

			Changes since 3.0.4

- A warning that host statements declared within subnet or shared-network
  scopes are actually global has been added.

- The default minimum lease time (if min-lease-time was not specified)
  was raised from 0 to 300.  0 is not thought to be sensible, and is
  known to be damaging.

- Added additional fatal error sanity checks surrounding lease binding
  state count calculations (free/active counts used for failover pool
  balancing).

514
515
516
517
- Some time value size fixes in 3.0.4 brought on from FreeBSD /usr/ports were
  misapplied to server values rather than client values.  The server no longer
  advertises 8-byte lease-time options when on 64-bit platforms.

518
519
520
521
- A bug where leases not in ACTIVE state would get billed to billed classes
  (classes with lease limitations) was fixed.  Non-active leases OFFERed
  to clients are no longer billed (but billing is checked before offering).

522
523
524
525
- The dhcpd.conf.5 manpage was updated in regard to the ddns-domainname
  configuration option - the default configuration and results should be
  more clear now.

526
527
528
529
530
- If the dhclient were to receive a DHCPNAK while it was in the RENEW
  state (and consequently, had an active, 'bound' address and related
  configuration options), it would fail to 'tear down' this information
  before proceeding into INIT state.  dhclient now iterates the dhclient-
  script with the 'EXPIRE' action to cause these teardowns prior to entering
531
  INIT state.  Thanks to a patch from Chris Zimmerman.
532

533
534
535
- The omapi.1 manpage had some formatting errors repaired thanks to a patch
  from Yoshihiko Sarumaru.

536
537
538
539
- A few lines of code that were failover-specific were moved within
  #if defined() clauses so that compilation without failover could be
  made possible.

540
541
542
543
- The log message emitted when the 'leased-address' value was not available
  in dhcpd.conf "executable statements" has been updated to be more helpful.
  Manpage information for this value has also been updated.

544
545
546
- Abandoned or dissociated (err condition) leases now remove any related
  dynamic dns bindings.  Thanks to a patch from Patrick Schoo.

547
548
549
550
- Attempting to write a new lease file to replace a corrupt (due to
  encountering non-retryable errors during writing) lease file should
  no longer result in an infinite recursion.

551
552
553
554
555
- Host declaration hardware addresses and client identifiers may only be
  configured once.  dhcpd will now fail to load config files that specify
  multiple identifiers (previous versions would silently over-ride the
  value with the later configured value).

- Several option codes that have been allocated since our last release
  have been named and documented.

- Option names of the form "unknown-123" have been removed from the in-
  memory hash tables.  In order to support options of these names that
  may appear in dhclient.leases or similar in previous versions, the
  parser will now find the new option code definition, or mock up a
  generic option code definition.  This should result in a smooth
  transition from one name to the other, as the new name is used to
  write new output.

			Changes since 3.0.4b2

- Null-termination sensing for certain clients that unfortunatley require
  it in DHCPINFORM processing was repaired.

- The host-name option and a few others were moved from "X" format to "t"
  format to be compatible with new NULL handling functions.

- DHCPINFORM processing is a little more careful about return addressing
  its responses, or if responding via a relay.  The INFORM related
  messages also log the 'effective client ip address' rather than the
  client's supplied ciaddr (since some clients produce null ciaddrs).

- The server was inappropriately sending leases to the RESET state in the
  event that multiple active leases were found to match a singly-identified
  client.  This was changed to RELEASED (by accepting a different, ACTIVE
  binding, the client is implicitly releasing its lease).  This repairs a
  bug wherein secondary servers in failover pairs detecting this condition
  move leases to RESET, and primaries refuse to accept that state
  transition (properly).

- The memset-after-dmalloc() changes made in 3.0.4b1 have been backed out.

			Changes since 3.0.4b1

- Command line parsing in omshell was repaired - it no longer closes
  STDIN after reading one line.

- The resolver library no longer closes the /etc/resolv.conf file
  descriptor it opened twice.

- Changes to trailing NULL removal in 't' option-atoms has been rethought,
  it now includes 'd' (domain name) types, and tries hard not to rewind an
  option beyond the start of the text field it is un-terminating.

			Changes since 3.0.3

- A DDNS update handling function was misusing the DNS error codes, rather
  than the internal generic result enumeration.  The result is a confusing
  syslog line, logging the wrong condition.

- The DHCP Server was not checking pool balance in the case where it brought
  a non-ACTIVE lease out of storage for a client that was returning to use
  a lease it once had long ago, and had since expired.

- Failover peers no longer bother to look for free leases to allocate when
  they already found the client's ACTIVE lease.  DISCOVERs are load balanced

- Fixed a bug in dhcrelay agent addition code that suppressed trailing
  PAD options - it was suppressing only one trailng PAD option, rather
  than the entire block of them.

! Fixed some unlikely overlapping-region memcpy() bugs in dhcrelay agent
  option addition and stripping code.  Added a few sanity checks.  Although
  highly improbable, due to requiring the reception of a DHCP datagram well
  in excess of all known to be used physical MTU limitations, it is possible
  this may have been used in a stack overflow security vulnerability.  Thanks
  to a patch from infamous42md.

! Added some sanity checks to OMAPI connection/authentication code.
  Although highly improbable, due to having to deliver in excess of 2^32
  bytes of data via the OMAPI channel, not to mention requiring dhcpd to
  be able to malloc() a memory region 2^32 bytes in size, it was possible
  this might have resulted in a heap overflow security vulnerability.
  Thanks to a patch from infamous42md.

- dmalloc() memset()'s the non-debug (data) portion of the allocated
  memory to zero.  Code that memset()'s the result returned by dmalloc() to
  zero is redundant.  These redundancies were removed.

- Some type declaration corrections to u_int16_t were made in common/tr.c
  (Token Ring support) thanks to a patch from Jason Vas Dias at RedHat.

- A failover bug that was allowing leases that EXPIRED or were RELEASED
  where tsfp and tstp are identical timestamps to languish in these
  transitional states has been repaired.  As a side effect, lease
  databases should be kept more consistent overall, not just for these
  transitional states.

- If the lease db is deleted out from under the daemon, and it moves to rewrite
  the db, it will go ahead with the operation and move the new db into place
  once it detects the old db does not exist.

- dhclient now ignores IRDA, SIT, and IEEE1394 network interfaces, as it
  is either nonsensical or (in the case of IEEE1394) is not known to support
  these interfaces.  Thanks to Marius Gedminas and Andrew Pollock of Debian.

- Some previously undocumented reasons for dhclient-script invoking has
  been doucmented in the dhclient-script.8 manpage.

- Failover potential expiry calculations (TSTP) have been corrected.  Results
  should be substantially more consistent, and proper given the constraints.

- Adjusted lease state validation checks in potential-conflict, to
  account for possible clock skew similarly to normal state, and several
  previously illegal transitions were made legal (ex: active->released).

- An impossible sanity check was removed from omapi/buffer.c, thanks to a
  patch from 'infamous42md'.

- An OMAPI host/network byte order problem in lease time values has been
  repaired.

- Several minor bugs, largely relating to treating 8-byte time values as
  4-byte entities, have been repaired after careful review of the FreeBSD
  ports collection's patch set.  Thanks to the nameless entities who have
  contributed to the FreeBSD ports.

- When writing a trace file, the file is now created with permissions 0600,
  to help administrators avoid accidentally publicising sensitive config
  data.

- The calculation of the maximum size of DHCP packets no longer includes
  Ethernet framing overhead.  The result is that the 'Maximum Message
  Size' option advertised by clients, or the default value 576, is no
  longer reduced by 14 bytes, and instead directly reflects the IP level
  MTU (and the default, minimum allowed IP MTU of 576).

- The special status of RELEASED/EXPIRED/RESET leases when a server
  is operating in partner-down was fixed.  It no longer requires a
  lease be twice the MCLT beyond STOS to 'reallocate', and the expiry
  event to turn these into FREE leases without peer acknowledgement
  (after STOS+MCLT) has been repaired.

- Compilation on older Solaris systems (lacking /usr/include/sys/int_types.h)
  has been repaired.

- "append"ing a string onto the end of a "t" type option (such as the
  domain-name field) that had been improperly NULL-terminated by the
  DHCP server will no longer result in a truncated string containing
  only the option from the server, and not the expected appended value.
  Thanks to a patch from Jason Vas Dias at RedHat.

- File handlers on configuration state (config files and lease dbs) should

- The linux build environment has had some minor improvements - better
  sensing of 64-bit pointer sizes (only used for establishing an icmp_id),
  and corrections to #if operators regarding LINUX_MAJOR should it ever
  move to 3.[01].x.

- The server now tries harder to survive the condition where it is unable
  to open a new lease file to rewrite the lease state database.

			Changes since 3.0.3b3

- dhclient.conf documentation for interface {} was updated to reflect recent
  discussion on the dhcp-hackers mailing list.

- In response to reports that the software does not compile on GCC 4.0.0,
  -Werror was removed from Makefile.conf for all platforms that used it.
  We will address the true problem in a future release; this is a temporary
  workaround.

			Changes since 3.0.3b2

- An error in code changes introduced in 3.0.3b2 was corrected, which caused
  static BOOTP clients to receive random addresses.

			Changes since 3.0.3b1

- A bug was fixed in BOOTPREQUEST handling code wherein stale references to
  host records would be left behind on leases that were not allocated to the
  client currently booting (eg in the case where the host was denied booting).

- The dhcpd.conf.5 manpage was updated to be more clear in regards to
  multiple host declarations (thanks to Vincent McIntyre).  'Interim' style
  dynamic updates were also retouched.

			Changes since 3.0.2

- A bug was fixed where a server might load balance a DHCP REQUEST to its
  peer after already choosing not to load balance the preceeding DISCOVER.
  The peer cannot allocate the originating server's lease.

- In the case where a secondary server lost its stable storage while the
  primary was still in communications-interrupted, and came back online,
  the lease databases would not be fully transferred to the secondary.
  This was due to the secondary errantly sending an extra UPDREQ message
  when the primary made its state transition to PARTNER-DOWN known.

- The package will now compile cleanly in gcc 3.3 and 3.4.  As a side effect,
  lease structures will be 9 bytes smaller on all platforms.  Thanks to
  Jason Vas Dias at Redhat.

- Interface discovery code in DISCOVER_UNCONFIGURED mode is now
  properly restricted to only detecting broadcast interfaces.  Thanks
  to a patch from Jason Vas Dias at RedHat.

- decode_udp_ip_header was changed so that the IP address was copied out
  to a variable, rather than referenced by a pointer.  This enforces 4-byte
  alignment of the 32-bit IP address value.  Thanks to a patch from Dr.
  Peter Poeml.

- An incorrect log message was corrected thanks to a patch from
  Dr. Peter Poeml.

- A bug in DDNS was repaired, where if the server's first DDNS action was
  a DDNS removal rather than a DDNS update, the resolver library's
  retransmit timer and retry timer was set to the default, implying a
  15 second timeout interval.  Which is a little excessive in a synchronous,
  single-threaded system.  In all cases, ISC DHCP should now hold fast to
  a 1-second timeout, trying only once.

- The siaddr field was being improperly set to the server-identifier when
  responding to DHCP messages.  RFC2131 clarified the siaddr field as
  meaning the 'next server in the bootstrap process', eg a tftp server.
  The siaddr field is now left zeroed unless next-server is configured.

- mockup_lease() could have returned in an error condition (or in the
  condition where no fixed-address was found matching the shared
  network) with stale references to a host record.  This is probably not
  a memory leak since host records generally never die anyway.

- A bug was repaired where failover servers would let stale client identifiers
  persist on leases that were reallocated to new clients not sending an id.

- Binding scopes ("set var = value;") are now removed from leases allocated
  by failover peers if the lease had expired.  This should help reduce the
  number of stale binding scopes on leases.

- A small memory leak was closed involving client identifiers larger than
  7 bytes, and failover.

- Configuring a subnet in dhcpd.conf with a subnet mask of 32 bits might
  cause an internal function to overflow heap.  Thanks to Jason Vas Dias
  at Redhat.

- Some inconsistencies in treating numbers that the lexer parsed as 'NUMBER'
  or 'NUMBER_OR_NAME' was repaired.  Hexadecimal parsing is affected, and
  should work better.

- In several cases, parse warnings were being issued before the lexical
  token had been advanced to the token whose value was causing an error...
  causing parse warnings to claim the problem is on the wrong token.

- Host declarations matching on client identifier for dynamic leases will
  no longer match fixed-address host declarations (this is now identical
  to behaviour for host records matching on hardware address).

			Changes since 3.0.2rc3

- A previously undocumented configuration directive, 'local-address',
  was documented in the dhcpd.conf manpage.

			Changes since 3.0.2rc2

- Two varaibles introduced in 3.0.2b1 were used without being initialized
  in the case where neither the FILE nor SNAME fields were available for
  overloading.  This was repaired.

- A heretofore believed to be impossible corner case of the option
  overloading implementation turned out to be possible ("Unable to sort
  overloaded options after 10 tries.").  The implementation was reworked
  to consider the case of an option so large it would require more than
  three chunks to fit.

- Many other instances of variables being used without being initialized
  were repaired.

- An uninitialized variable in omapi_io_destroy() led to the discovery
  that this function may result in orphaned pointers (and hence, a memory
  leak).

			Changes since 3.0.2rc1

- allocate_lease() was rewritten to repair a bug in which the server would
  try to allocate an ABANDONED lease when FREE leases were available.

			Changes since 3.0.2b1

- Some dhcp-eval.5 manpage formatting was repaired.

			Changes since 3.0.1

- A bug was fixed in the server's 'option overloading' implementation,
  where options loaded into the 'file' and 'sname' packet fields were
  not aligned precisely as rfc2131 dictates.

- The FreeBSD client script was changed to support the case where a domain
  name was not provided by the server.

- A memory leak in 'omshell' per each command line parsed was
  repaired, thanks to a patch from Jarkko Torppa.

- Log functions writing to stderr were adjusted to use the STDERR_FILENO
  system definition rather than '2'.  This is a no-op for 90% of platforms.

- One call to trace_write_packet_iov() counted the number of io vectors
  incorrectly, causing inconsistent tracefiles.  This was fixed.

- Some expression parse failure memory leaks were closed.

- A host byte order problem in tracefiles was repaired.

- Pools configured in DHCPD for failover possessing permission lists that
  previously were assumed to not include dyanmic bootp clients are now
  a little more pessimistic.  The result is, dhcpd will nag you about just
  about most pools that possess a 'allow' statement with no 'deny' that
  would definitely match a dynamic bootp client.

- The 'ddns-update-style' configuration warning bit now insists that
  the configuration be globally scoped.

- Two memory leaks in dhclient were closed thanks to a patch from Felix
  Farkas.

- Some minor but excellently pedantic documentation errors were fixed
  thanks to a patch from Thomas Klausner.

- Bugs in operator precedence in executable statements have been repaired
  once again.  More legal syntaxes should be parsed legally.

- Failing to initialize a tracefile for any reason if a tracefile was
  specified is now a fatal error.  Thanks to a patch from Albert Herranz.

- Corrected a bug in which the number of leases transferred as calculated
  by the failover primary and sent to peers in POOLRESP responses may be
  incorrect.  This value is not believed to be used by other failover
  implementations, excepting perhaps as logged information.

- Corrected a bug in which 'dhcp_failover_send_poolresp()' was in fact
  sending POOLREQ messages instead of POOLRESP mesasges.  This message
  was essentially ignored since failover secondaries effectively do not
  respond to POOLREQ messages.

- Type definitions for various bitwidths of integers in the sunos5-5
  build of ISC DHCP have been fixed.  It should compile and run more
  easily when built in 64-bit for this platform.

- "allow known-clients;" is now a legal syntax, to avoid confusion.

- If one dhcp server chooses to 'load balance' a request to its failover
  peer, it first checks to see if it believes said peer has a free
  lease to allocate before ignoring the DISCOVER.

- log() was logging a work buffer, rather than the value returned by
  executing the statements configured by the user.  In some cases,
  the work buffer and the intended results were the same.  In some other
  cases, they were not.  This was fixed thanks to a patch from Gunnar
  Fjone and directconnect.no.

- Compiler warnings for some string type conversions was fixed, thanks
  to Andreas Gustafsson.

- The netbsd build environments were simplified to one, in which
  -Wconversion is not used, thanks to Andreas Gustafsson.

- How randomness in the backoff-cutoff dhclient configuration variable
  is implemented was better documented in the manpage, and the behaviour
  of dhclient in REQUEST timeout handling was changed to match that of
  DISCOVER timeout handling.

- Omapi was hardened against clients that pass in null values, thanks
  to a patch from Mark Jason Dominus.

- A bug was fixed in dhclient that kept it from doing client-side
  ddns updates.  Thanks to a patch from Andreas Gustafsson, which
  underwent some modification after review by Jason Vas Dias.

- Failover implementations disconnected due to the network between
  them (rather than one of the two shutting down) will now try to
  re-establish the failover connection every 5 seconds, rather than
  to simply try once and give up until one of them is restarted.
  Thanks to a patch from Ulf Ekberg from Infoblox, and field testing
  by Greger V. Teigre which led to an enhancement to it.

- A problem that kept DHCP Failover secondaries from tearing down
  ddns records was repaired.  Thanks to a patch from Ulf Ekberg from
  Infoblox.

- 64bit pointer sizes are detected properly on FreeBSD now.

- A bug was repaired where the DHCP server would leave stale references
  to host records on leases it once thought about offering to certain
  clients.  The result would be to apply host and 'known' scopes to the
  wrong clients (possibly denying booting).  NOTE:  The 'mis-host' patch
  that was being circulated as a workaround is not the way this bug was
  fixed.  If you were a victim of this bug in 3.0.1, you are cautioned
  to proceed carefully and see if it fixes your problem.

- A bug was repaired in the server's DHCPINFORM handling, where it
  tried to divine the client's address from the source packet and
  would get it wrong.  Thanks to Anshuman Singh Rawat.

- A log message was introduced to help illuminate the case where the
  server was unable to find a lease to assign to any BOOTP client.
  Thanks to Daniel Baker.

- A minor dhcpd.conf.5 manpage error was fixed.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc14

- The global variable 'cur_time' was centralized and is now uniformly of a
  type #defined in system-dependent headers.  It had previously been defined
  in one of many places as a 32-bit value, and this causes mayhem on 64-bit
  big endian systems.  It probably wasn't too healthy on little endian
  systems either.

- A printf format string error introduced in rc14 was repaired.

- AIX system-dependent header file was altered to only define NO_SNPRINTF
  if the condition used to #ifdef in vsnprintf in AIX' header files
  is false.

- The Alpha/OSF system-dependent header file was altered to define
  NO_SNPRINTF on OS revisions older than 4.0G.

- omapip/test.c had string.h added to its includes.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc13

! CAN-2004-0460 - CERT VU#317350: Five stack overflow exploits were closed
  in logging messages with excessively long hostnames provided by the
  clients.  It is highly probable that these could have been used by
  attackers to gain arbitrary root access on systems using ISC DHCP 3.0.1
  release candidates 12 or 13.  Special thanks to Gregory Duchemin for
  both finding and solving the problem.

! CAN-2004-0461 - CERT VU#654390: Once the above was closed, an opening
  in log_*() functions was evidented, on some specific platforms where
  vsnprintf() was not believed to be available and calls were wrapped to
  sprintf() instead.  Again, credit goes to Gregory Duchemin for finding
  the problem.  Calls to snprintf() are now linked to a distribution-local
  snprintf implementation, only in those cases where the architecture is
  not known to provide one (see includes/cf/[arch].h).  If you experience
  linking problems with snprintf/vsnprintf or 'isc_print_' functions, this
  is where to look.  This vulnerability did not exist in any previously
  published version of ISC DHCP.

- Compilation on hpux 11.11 was repaired.

- 'The cross-compile bug fix' was backed out.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc12

- Fixed a bug in omapi lease lookup function, to form the hardware
  address for the hash lookup correctly, thanks to a patch from
  Richard Hirst.

- Fixed a bug where dhcrelay was sending relayed responses back to the
  broadcast address, but with the source's unicast mac address.  Should
  now conform to rfc2131 section 4.1.

- Cross-compile bug fix; use $(AR) instead of ar.  Thanks to Morten Brorup.

- Fixed a crash bug in dhclient where dhcpd servers that do not provide
  renewal times results in an FPE.  As a side effect, dhclient can now
  properly handle 0xFFFFFFFF (-1) expiry times supplied by servers.  Thanks
  to a patch from Burt Silverman.

- The 'ping timeout' debugs from rc12 were removed to -DDEBUG only,
  and reformatted to correct a compilation error on solaris platforms.

- A patch was applied which fixes a case where leases read from the
  leases database do not properly over-ride previously read leases.

- dhcpctl.3 manpage was tweaked.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc11

- A patch from Steve Campbell was applied with minor modifications to
  permit reverse dns PTR record updates with values containing spaces.

- A patch from Florian Lohoff was applied with some modifications to
  dhcrelay.  It now discards packets whose hop count exceeds 10 by default,
  and a command-line option (-c) can be used to set this threshold.

- A failover bug relating to identifying peers by name length instead of
  by name was fixed.

- Delcaring failover configs within shared-network statements should no
  longer result in error.

- The -nw command line option to dhclient now works.

- Thanks to a patch from Michael Richardson:
	- Some problems with long option processing have been fixed.
	- Some fixes to minires so that updates of KEY records will work.

- contrib/ms2isc was updated by Shu-Min Chang of the Intel Corporation.
  see contrib/ms2isc/readme.txt for revision notes.

- Dhclient no longer uses shell commands to kill another instance of
  itself, it sends the signal directly.  Thanks to a patch from Martin
  Blapp.

- The FreeBSD dhclient-script was changed so that a failure to write to
  /etc/resolv.conf does not prematurely end the script.  This keeps dhclient
  from looping infinitely when this is the case.  Thanks to a patch from
  Martin Blapp.

- A patch from Bill Stephens was applied which resolves a problem with lease
  expiry times in failover configurations.

- A memory leak in configuration parsing was closed thanks to a patch from
  Steve G.

- The function which discovers interfaces will now skip non-broadcast or
  point-to-point interfaces, thanks to a patch from David Brownlee.

- Options not yet known by the dhcpd or dhclient have had their names
  changed such that they do not contain # symbols, in case they should ever
  appear in a lease file.  An option that might have been named "#144" is
  now "unknown-144".

- Another patch from Bill Stephens which allows the ping-check timeout to
  be configured as 'ping-timeout'.  Defaults to 1.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc10

- Potential buffer overflows in minires repaired.

- A change to the linux client script to use /bin/bash, since /bin/sh may
  not be bash.

- Some missing va_end cleanups thanks to a patch from Thomas Klausner.

- A correction of boolean parsing syntax validation - some illegal syntaxes
  that worked before are now detected and produce errs, some legal syntaxes
  that errored before will now work properly.

- Some search-and-replace errors that caused some options to change their
  names was repaired.

- Shu-min Chang of the Intel corporation has contributed a perl script and
  module that converts the MS NT4 DHCP configuration to a ISC DHCP3
  configuration file.

- Applied the remainder of the dhcpctl memory leak patch provided by Bill
  Squier at ReefEdge, Inc.  (groo@reefedge.com).

- Missing non-optional failover peer configurations will now result in a soft
  error rather than a null dereference.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc9

- A format string was corrected to fix compiler warnings.

- A number of spelling corrections were made in the man pages.

- The dhclient.conf.5 man page was changed to refer to do-forward-updates
  rather than a configuration option that doesn't exist.

- A FreeBSD-specific bug in the interface removal handling was fixed.

- A Linux-specific Token Ring detection problem was fixed.

- Hashes removed from as-yet-unknown agent options, having those options
  appear in reality before we know about them will no longer produce
  self-corrupting lease databases.

- dhclient will use the proper port numbers now when using the -g option.

- A order-of-operations bug with 2 match clauses in 1 class statement is
  fixed thanks to a patch from Andrew Matheson.

- Compilation problems on Solaris were fixed.

- Compilation problems when built with DEBUG or DEBUG_PACKET were repaired.

- A fix to the dhcp ack process which makes certain group options will be
  included in the first DHCPOFFER message was made thanks to a patch from
  Ling Gou.

- A few memory leaks were repaired thanks to patches from Bill Squier at
  ReefEdge, Inc.  (groo@reefedge.com).

- A fix for shared-networks that sometimes give clients options for the
  wrong subnets (in particular, 'option routers') was applied, thanks to
  Ted Lemon for the patch.

- Omshell's handling of dotted octets as values was changed such that dots
  one after the other produce zero values in the integer string.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc8

- Fix a format string vulnerability in the server that could lead to a
  remote root compromise (discovered by NGSEC Research Team, www.ngsec.com).

- Add additional support for NetBSD/sparc64.

- Fix a bug in the command-line parsing of the client.  Also, resolve
  a memory leak.

- Add better support for shells other than bash in the Linux client
  script.

- Various build fixes for modern versions of FreeBSD and Linux.

- Fix a bad bounds check when printing binding state names.

- Clarify documentation about fixed-address and multiple addresses.

- Fix a typo in the authoritative error message.

- Make a log entry when we can't write a billing class.

- Use conversion targets that are the right size on all architectures.

- Increment the hop count when relaying.

- Log a message when lease state is changed through OMAPI.

- Don't rerun the shared_network when evaluating the pool.

- Fix a reversed test in the parser.

- Change the type of rbuf_max.

- Make FTS_LAST a manifest constant to quiet warnings.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc7

- Fix two compiler warnings that are generated when compiling on Solaris
  with gcc.   These stop the build, even though they weren't actually
  errors, because we prefer that our builds generate no warnings.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc6

- Don't allow a lease that's in the EXPIRED, RELEASED or RESET state
  to be renewed.

- Implement lease stealing for cases where the primary has fewer leases
  than the secondary, as called for by the standard.

- Add a fudge factor to the lease expiry acceptance code, (suggested
  by Kevin Miller of CMU).

- Fix a bug in permit_list_match that made it much too willing to say
  that two permit lists matched.

- Unless DEBUG_DNS_UPDATES is defined, print more user-friendly (and
  also more compact) messages about DNS updates.

- Fix a bug in generating wire-format domain names for the FQDN option.

- Fix a bug where the FQDN option would not be returned if the client
  requested it, contrary to the standard.

- On Darwin, use the FreeBSD DHCP client script.

- On NetBSD/sparc, don't check for casting warnings.

- Add a flag in the DHCP client to disable updating the client's A
  record when sending an FQDN option indicating that the client is
  going to update its A record.

- In the client, don't attempt a DNS update until one second after
  configuring the new IP address, and if the update times out, keep
  trying until a response, positive or negative, is received from the
  DNS server.

- Fix an uninitialized memory bug in the DHCP client.

- Apply some FreeBSD-specific bug fixes suggested by Murray Stokely.

- Fix a bug in ns_parserr(), where it was returning the wrong sort
  of result code in some cases (suggested by Ben Harris of the
  NetBSD project).

- Fix a bug in is_identifier(), where it was checking against EOF
  instead of the END_OF_FILE token (also suggested by Ben Harris).

- Fix a bug where if an option universe contained no options, the
  DHCP server could dump core (Walter Steiner).

- Fix a bug in the handling of encapsulated options.

- Fix a bug that prevented NWIP suboptions from being processed.

- Delete the FTS_BOOTP and FTS_RESERVED states and implement them
  as modifier flags to the FTS_ACTIVE state, as called for in the
  failover protocol standard.

- Fix bugs in the pool merging code that resulted in references and
  dereferences of null pointers.   This bug had no impact unless the
  POINTER_DEBUG flag was defined.

- In the server, added a do-forward-updates flag that can be used to
  disable forward updates in all cases, so that sites that want the
  clients to take sole responsibility for updating their A record can
  do so.

- Make it possible to disable optimization of PTR record updates.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc5

- Include some new documentation and changes provided by Karl Auer.

- Add a workaround for some Lexmark printers that send a double-NUL-
  terminated host-name option, which would break DNS updates.

- Fix an off-by-one error in the MAC-address checking code for
  DHCPRELEASE that was added in 3.0.1rc5.

- Fix a bug where client-specific information was not being discarded
  from the lease when it expired or was released, resulting in
  problems if the lease was reallocated to a different client.

- If more than one allocation pool is specified that has the same set
  of constraints as another allocation pool on the same shared
  network, merge the two pools.

- Don't print an error in fallback_discard, since this just causes
  confusion and does not appear to be helping to encourage anyone to
  fix this bug.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc4

- Fix a bug that would cause the DHCP server to spin if asked to parse
  a certain kind of incorrect statement.

- Fix a related bug that would prevent an error from being reported in
  the same case.

- Additional documentation.

- Make sure that the hardware address matches the lease when
  processing a DHCPRELEASE message.

			Changes since 3.0.1rc3

- A minor bug fix in the arguments to a logging function call.
- Documentation update for dhcpd.conf.

		        Changes since 3.0.1rc2

- Allow the primary to send a POOLREQ message.   This isn't what the current
  failover draft says to do, so we may have to back it out if I can't get the
  authors to relent, but the scheme for balancing that's specified in the
  current draft seems needlessly hairy, so I'm floating a trial balloon.
  The rc1 code did not implement the method described in the draft either.

		        Changes since 3.0.1rc1

- Treat NXDOMAIN and NXRRSET as success when we are trying to delete a
  domain or RRSET.   This allows the DHCP server to forget about a name
  it added to the DNS once it's been removed, even if the DHCP server
  wasn't the one that removed it.

- Install defaults for failover maximum outstanding updates and maximum
  silent time.   This prevents problems that might occur if these values
  were not configured.

- Don't do DDNS deletes if ddns-update-style is none.

- Return relay agent information options in DHCPNAK.   This prevents DHCPNAK
  messages from being dropped when the relay agent information option contains
  routing information.

- Fix a problem where coming up in recover wouldn't result in an update
  request being sent.

- Add some more chatty messages when we start a recovery update and when it's
  done.

- Fix a possible problem where some state might have been left around
  after the peer lost contact and regained contact about how many updates
  were pending.

- Don't nix a lease update because of a lease conflict.   This test has
  never (as far as I know) prevented a mistake, and it appears to cause
  problems with failover.

- Add support in rc history code for keeping a selective history, rather
  than a history of all references and dereferences.   This code is only used
  when extensive additional debugging is enabled.

		           Changes since 3.0

- Make allocators for hash tables.   As a side effect, this fixes a memory
  smash in the subclass allocation code.

- Fix a small bug in omshell where if you try to close an object when
  no object is open, it dumps core.

- Fix an obscure coredump that could occur on shutdown.

- Fix a bug in the recording of host declaration rubouts in the lease file.

- Fix two potential spins in the host deletion code.

- Fix a core dump that would happen if an application tried to update
  a host object attribute with a null value.

		Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 12

- Fix a memory leak in the evaluation code.

- Fix an obscure core dump.

- Print a couple of new warnings when parsing the configuration file
  when crucial information is left out.

- Log "no free leases" as an error.

- Documentation updates.

		Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 11

- Always return a subnet selection option if one is sent.

- Fix a warning that was being printed because an automatic data
  structure wasn't zeroed.

- Fix some failover state transitions that were being handled
  incorrectly.

- When supersede_lease is called on a lease whose end time has already
  expired, but for which a state transition has not yet been done, do
  a state transition.   This fixes the case where if the secondary
  allocated a lease to a client and the lease "expired" while the
  secondary was in partner-down, no expiry event would actually
  happen, so the lease would remain active until the primary was
  restarted.

		Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 10

- Fix a bug that was preventing released leases from changing state
  in failover-enabled pools.

- Fix a core dump in the client identifier finder code (for host

	  Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 8 Patchlevel 1

- Fix a parsing bug that broke dns updates (both interim and ad-hoc).
  This was introduced in rc8pl1 as an unintended result of the memory
  leakage fixes that were in pl1.

- Fix a long-standing bug where the server would record that an update
  had been done for a client with no name, even though no update had
  been done, and then when the client's lease expired the deletion of
  that nonexistant record would time out because the name was the null
  string. 

- Clean up the omshell, dhcpctl and omapi man pages a bit.

		Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 8

- Fix a bug that could cause the DHCP server to spin if
  one-lease-per-client was enabled.

- Fix a bug that was causing core dumps on BSD/os in the presence of
  malformed packets.

- In partner-down state, don't restrict lease lengths to MCLT.

- On the failover secondary, record the MCLT received from the primary
  so that if we come up without a connection to the primary we don't
  wind up giving out zero-length leases.

- Fix some compilation problems on BSD/os.

- Fix a bunch of memory leaks.

- Fix a couple of bugs in the option printer.

- Fix an obscure error reporting bug in the dns update code, and also
  make the message clearer when a key algorithm isn't supported.

- Fix a bug in the tracing code that prevented trace runs that used
  tcp connections from being played back.

- Add some additional debugging capability for catching memory leaks
  on exit.

- Make the client release the lease correctly on shutdown.

- Add some configurability to the build system.

- Install omshell manual page in man1, not man8.

- Craig Gwydir sent in a patch that fixes a long-standing bug in the
  DHCP client that could cause core dumps, but that for some reason
  hadn't been noticed until now.

		Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 7

- Fix a bug in failover where we weren't sending updates after a
  transition from communications-interrupted to normal.

- Handle expired/released/reset -> free transition according to the
  protocol specification (this works - the other way not only wasn't
  conformant, but also didn't work).

- Add a control object in both client and server that allows either
  daemon to be shut down cleanly.

- When writing a lease, if we run out of disk space, shut down the
  output file and insist on writing a new one before proceeding.

- In the server, if the OMAPI listener port is occupied, keep trying
  to get it, rather than simply giving up and exiting.

- Support fetching variables from leases and also updating and adding
  variables to leases via OMAPI.

- If two failover peers have wildly different clocks, refuse to start
  doing failover.

- Fix a bug in the DNS update code that could cause core dumps when
  running on alpha processors.

- Fixed a bug in ddns updates for static lease entries, thanks to a
  patch from Andrey M Linkevitch.

- Add support for Darwin/MacOS X

- Install omshell (including new documentation).

- Support DNS updates in the client (this is a very obscure feature
  that most DHCP client users probably will not be able to use).

- Somewhat cleaner status logging in the client.

- Make OMAPI key naming syntax compatible with the way keys are
  actually named (key names are domain names).

- Fix a bug in the lease file writer.

- Install DHCP ISC headers in a different place than BIND 9 ISC
  headers, to avoid causing trouble in BIND 9 builds.

- Don't send updates for attributes on an object when the attributes
  haven't changed.   Support deleting attributes on remote objects.

- Fix a number of bugs in omshell, and add the unset and refresh
  statements.

- Handle disconnects in OMAPI a little bit more intelligently (so that
  the caller gets ECONNRESET instead of EINVAL).

- Fix a bunch of bugs in the handling of clients that have existing
  leases when the try to renew their leases while failover is
  operating.

		Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 6

- Fix a core dump that could happen when processing a DHCPREQUEST from
  a client that had a host declaration that contained both a
  fixed-address declaration and a dhcp-client-identifier option
  declaration, if the client identifier was longer than nine bytes.

- Fix a memory leak that could happen in certain obscure cases when
  using omapi to manipulate leases.

- Fix some bugs and omissions in omshell.


		Changes since 3.0 Release Candidate 5

- Fix a bug in omapi_object_dereference that prevented objects in
  chains from having their reference counts decreased on dereference.

- Fix a bug in omapi_object_dereference that would prevent object
  chains from being freed upon removal of the last reference external
  to the chain.

- Fix a number of other memory leaks in the OMAPI protocol subsystem.

- Add code in the OMAPI protocol handler to trace memory leakage.

- Clean up the memory allocation/reference history printer.

- Fix some broken failover state transitions.

- Documentation fixes.

- Take out an unnecessary check in DHCP relay agent information option
  stashing code that was preventing REBINDING clients from rebinding.

- Fix the dhcp_failover_put_message to not attempt to allocate a
  zero-length buffer.   Some versions of malloc() fail if you try to
  allocate a zero-length buffer, and this was causing problems on,
  e.g., Digital Unix.

- Fix a case where the failover code was printing an error message
  when no error had occurred.

- Fix a problem where when a server went down and back up again, the
  peer would not see a state transition and so would stay in the
  non-communicating state.

- Be smart about going into recover_wait.

- Fix a problem in the failover implementation where peers would fail
  to come into sync if interrupted in the RECOVER state.   This could
  have been the cause of some problems people have reported recently.

- Fix a problem with billing classes where they would not be unbilled
  when the client lease expired.

- If select fails, figure out which descriptor is bad, and cut it out
  of the I/O loop.   This prevents a potentially nasty spin.  I
  haven't heard any report it in a while, but it came up consistently
  in testing.

- Fix a bug in the relay agent where if you specified interfaces on
  the command line, it would fail.

- Fix a couple of small bugs in the omapi connection object (no known
  user impact).

- Add the missing 3.0 Beta 1 lease conversion script.

- Read dhcp client script hooks if they exist, rather than only if
  they're executable.

  because of this bug.   The bug should be straightforward to fix, so
  a new release candidate is expected shortly.

- There is a known problem in the DDNS update code that is probably a
  bug, and is not, as far as we know, fixed in this patchlevel.

- Fix a bug in the DNS update code where a status code was not being
  checked.   This may have been causing core dumps.

- When parsing the lease file, if a lease declaration includes a
  billing class statement, and the lease already has a billing class,
  unbill the old class.

- When processing failover transactions, where acks will be deferred,
  process the state transition immediately.

-  Don't try to use the new SIOCGIFCONF buffer size detection code on
   Linux 2.0, which doesn't provide this functionality.

- Apply a patch suggested by Tuan Uong for a problem in dlpi.c.

- Fix a problem in using the which command in the configure script.

- Fix a parse error in the client when setting up an omapi listener.

- Document the -n and -g flags to the client.

- Make sure there is always a stdin and stdout on startup.   This
  prevents shell scripts from accidentally writing error messages into
  configuration files that happen to be opened as stderr.

- If an interface is removed, the client will now notice that it is
  gone rather than spinning.   This has only been tested on NetBSD.

- The client will attempt to get an address even if it can't create a
  lease file.

- Don't overwrite tracefiles.

- Fix some memory allocation bugs in failover.

- Implement omshell, which can be used to do arbitrary things to the

- Fix a case where if a client had two different leases the server could
  actually dereference the second one when it hadn't been referenced,
  leading to memory corruption and a core dump. (James Brister)

- Fix a case where a client could request the address of another client's
  lease, but find_lease wouldn't detect that the other client had it, and
  would attempt to allocate it to the client, resulting in a lease conflict
  message.

- Fix a case where a client with more than one client identifier could be

  hex list as a value for a variable, which would then not parse.
  The fix is to always write strings as quoted strings, with any
  non-printable characters quoted as octal escape sequences.   So
  a file written the old way still won't work, but new files written
  this way will work.
