ISC DHCP versions 4.3.4 and 4.1-ESV-R13 posted

These are maintenance releases of ISC DHCP, so most of the changes are bug fixes.

We have added support for DHCPv4 over DHCPv6 (RFC 7341). This allows a set of co-operating programs to encapsulate a DHCPv4 request into a DHCPv6 request and transmit it over an IPv6 network, thus allowing a “v4 island” to get DHCP service. It is still somewhat experimental. More information can be found in this article in our knowledgebase.

We would like to thank the numerous patch contributors who reported issues and suggested code for this release, including:

  • Jiri Popelka of RedHat
  • Bill Parker
  • Nathan Neulinger at Missouri S&T
  • Timothe Litt
  • Sebastian Poehn from Sophos
  • Andrey Jr. Melnikov
  • Antoine Beaupré from Debian
  • Jarkko Torppa
  • Alex McWhirter
  • Jay Ford, University of Iowa

If you use ISC DHCP and appreciate the regular maintenance releases, please consider making a donation, of any amount, to help fund this work. Thank you!
