Kea Cloudsmith Repository Updates

Many Kea DHCP users use ISC packages, so we want to let everyone know that we will be cleaning up some older repositories on Cloudsmith. The repositories hosting development branches 1.9 and 2.1 will be decommissioned on February 29, 2024, and the repository for the 2.3 releases is scheduled for removal on March 29, 2024. Moreover, the repository for the 2.5 releases will be phased out following the public availability of the stable 2.6.0 release.

Additionally, beginning with the 2.7.X release series, we will be launching a new repository on Cloudsmith, named kea-dev, where all other future development releases will be stored.

Repositories for stable releases will remain unaffected.

Should you require packages from the 1.9, 2.1, or 2.3 releases, we strongly recommend creating a backup copy.

It’s possible to use the wget tool to download particular packages, e.g:


Or use a package manager: apt-get download <package-name>; dnf download <package-name>;

The source code for each release can always be accessed and will continue to be available on our downloads site at
