+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 26
+
+- Fix UDP/IP checksum code
+
+- Fix UDP payload length computation to prevent logging of spurious
+ errors.
+
+- Support compilation on MacOS X
+
+- Add support for some options that were added in RFC2132.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 25
+
+- Use the udp header's length rather than computing the length based
+ on the number of bytes received, because some broken relay agents
+ send packets with ip lengths that are longer than then sum of the ip
+ header size and the udp length.
+
+- Do path keyword substitution on unformatted manual pages before
+ installing them.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 24
+
+- D'oh! Fix a really stupid mistake in hash.c.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 23
+
+- Support an always-reply-rfc1048 flag, which says to reply with an
+ RFC1048-style vendor extensions buffer even if the client didn't
+ send an RFC1048-style magic number.
+
+- Fix a null pointer dereference.
+
+- Use netmask from subnet if no netmask option specified.
+
+- IRIX support (thanks to Don Badrak).
+
+- Install unformatted manual pages on Linux.
+
+- Add note in README about zcat vs. gzcat on BSD/os.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 22
+
+- Test for lease before dereferencing it in dhcprequest.
+
+- Free the client parameter request list in dhcpnak if there is one.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 21
+
+- Fix a pasto in options.c that will cause a core dump whenever a
+ client sends in a request without a parameter request list.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 20
+
+- Actually do the client fix mentioned below - Patchlevel 20 only contained
+ half of the fix.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 19
+
+- Removed arp table clearing code from solaris client script.
+
+- Document Linux "protocol not configured" error more thoroughly.
+
+- Clean up some unused variables.
+
+- Add entry and exit hooks to all dhcp client scripts, along with a
+ make_resolv_conf function that can be redefined in the entry hooks.
+ Document this new feature set.
+
+- Fix client to take advantage of network APIs that allow it to
+ receive a unicast instead of requesting that the DHCP server
+ broadcast its response.
+
+- Add -pf flag to all daemons allowing user to specify PID file name
+ on command line.
+
+- Undo a previous change that attempted to be clever about testing
+ interface flags but wound up being stupid instead.
+
+- Enforce access control on DHCPREQUEST messages as well as
+ DHCPDISCOVER messages.
+
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 18
+
+- Support added for AIX 4.1.5.0 (and hopefully other versions).
+
+- Use /var/run instead of /etc on Digital Unix.
+
+- Change DHCP client exponential backoff code to back off more slowly,
+ so that it is more robust in lossy environments, at the expense of
+ being a bit less polite to the server.
+
+- Don't request a specific lease interval in the client unless the
+ user says to do so.
+
+- Don't print DHCPXXX in wrong xxx messages unless DEBUG is defined.
+
+- Fix handling of secs field.
+
+- Fix handling of append statement.
+
+- Fix documentation for append and prepend statements.
+
+- Fix server support for parameter request list and maximum message
+ size.
+
+- Parameterize more hardware types in discover_interfaces. Check for
+ IFF_BROADCAST instead of !IFF_POINTOPOINT
+
+- Print kernel configuration warning message if we get EINVAL when
+ opening or configuring the Linux packet filter.
+
+- Fix a bug in UDP checksum code (thanks to John Nemeth for figuring
+ this out) and re-enable UDP checksumming. This allows the client
+ to work with some buggy DHCP servers that can't handle zero
+ checksums in the UDP header - in particular, the one John's cable
+ modem ISP is using.
+
+- Don't report packet header checksum errors unless we see a lot of
+ them. It's perfectly normal for some number of checksum errors to
+ occur.
+
+- Refer to the dhcpd.leases man page when printing an error message
+ prior to exiting because there's no lease database.
+
+- Add information to the README telling the reader how to get to the
+ manual pages.
+
+- Fix the server packet transmission code to unicast when it can.
+
+- Fix a typo in the dhcpd.conf manual page.
+
