Internet Software Consortium
Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol Distribution
- Version 2, Beta 1, Patchlevel 27
- April 23, 1999
+ Version 2
+ June 22, 1999
-This is the first Beta release of Version 2 of the Internet Software
-Consortium DHCP Distribution. This beta is believed to be fairly
+Version 2 of the ISC DHCP Distribution includes the ISC DHCP server,
+DHCP Client and DHCP/BOOTP Relay Agent.
+This version has been in a near feature freeze since January of 1998,
+was in Beta test from that time to June of 1999, and has now been
+released in its final form. It has a number of important features,
+and is the release that we would expect most sites to run.
-Version 1 of the ISC DHCP Distribution includes just a DHCP Server.
-Version 1 has been in feature freeze since late 1996, and is quite
-stable. This is the release that we would expect very conservative
-sites to run in production, but it is no longer recommended.
+For information on how to install, configure and run this software,
+as well as how to find documentation and report bugs, please consult
+the README file.
-Version 2 of the ISC DHCP Distribution adds a DHCP Client and a
-DHCP/BOOTP Relay Agent to the DHCP Server that was offered in version
-1.0. In addition, some new capabilities have been added to the
- - IP addresses are now tested before they are assigned to
- clients. This allows the DHCP server to detect rogue
- machines that may have hijacked IP addresses before an IP
- address conflict can occur.
+This log describes the changes that have been made in version 2.0
+since June of 1997.
- - The server may be configured so that some DHCP clients can
- be excluded from booting.
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 29
- - Improved NAKing behaviour, so that clients that are using
- addresses other than the one the server knows they should be
- using are disciplined quickly.
+- Define BYTE_ORDER in includes/cf/hpux.h so that ip.h will compile
+ correctly on HP-UX.
-This version has been in a near feature freeze since January of 1998,
-has been in Beta test since then, and is planned for final release in
-mid-1999. It has a number of important features, and is the release
-that we would expect most sites to run. It is possible to run the
-Version 1 server with the Version 2 client at sites that want to be
-Version 3 of the ISC DHCP Distribution will add conditional behaviour,
-client classing, Dynamic DNS Support, DHCPv4 16-bit option codes,
-asynchronous DNS query resolution, DHCP Authentication, and possibly
-support for a DHCP Interserver Protocol and live querying of the DHCP
-database. Currently, only client classing and conditional behaviour
-have been implemented - the DNS code is waiting for an enhanced DNS
-resolver. The code has gone through a major internal restructuring
-which will help to support wider option codes, and possibly IPv6, as
-well as a more sensible memory allocation strategy. This release is
-running in producion at the ISC, but is not expected to be stable in
-the near future, and is intended for sites that are in a position to
-experiment, or for sites that desperately need the new features.
+- Fix a long-standing but minor bug in the way the program name for
+ syslog was derived.
+- Fix a long-standing bug that prevented the DHCP server from broadcasting
+ responses to BOOTP clients that requested a broadcast response.
+- In dhcprequest(), check to make sure that there's a lease before trying
+ to acknowledge it to the client. This fixes a potential core dump that
+ a few people observed.
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 28
+- Fix some pastos I introduced when merging Andrew Chittenden's token
+ ring support.
+- Apply a patch to the token ring support from Andrew Chittenden.
+ CHANGES FROM VERSION 2.0 BETA 1 PATCHLEVEL 27
+- Add dependencies to makefiles.
+- Don't use ping -w 1 in freebsd client script.
+- Token ring support for LPF, contributed by Andrew Chittenden.
+- Fix a subtle bug that would cause the server to respond incorrectly
+ in some cases when the client sent duplicate DHCPREQUEST packets.
+- Fix option pretty printing for 'X' format.
+- Add some special cases to deal with DHCPREQUEST packets from RFC1541
+- Fix an obscure bug in nested subnet mask handling.
+- Fix a bug in abandoned lease reclamation.
+- Allow maximum message size to be set in configuration file.
+- Allow parameter request list to be supplied in configuration file.
