ISC DHCP 4.3.0a1 Now Available

We have now released ISC DHCP 4.3.0a1. The theme for this release is “v6 uplift.” We are upgrading some of the features you’ve used for DHCPv4 to make them available for DHCPv6. In general we’ve tried to use the same or similar commands so that moving from a DHCPv4 feature to DHCPv6 is as painless as possible.

Over time we plan to add several articles to our Knowledgebase to describe some of the new features and how you might configure them. You can also review them by watching a webinar we presented on the new features: ISC YouTube - ISC DHCP 4.3.

As always, we’d appreciate anyone who can test out the new (and old) features and report any problems back to us. Please remember this is an alpha release - while we have done our own testing, the software is not suitable for production purposes quite yet. If all goes well we should be releasing a beta version in early January.

The tarball and release notes for this release can be found on our FTP site: ftp://ftp.isc.org/isc/dhcp/.
