        Release Notes: Absence of the "require" directive now causes the client to accept the first DHCP offer. The default configuration file has been updated to be more likely to work out of the box. "do-measure-router-latency" now works as advertised. Other minor cosmetic fixes have been made.

        •  28 Jun 2003 05:16

          Release Notes: This release is much more compliant to RFC2131 and RFC2132. The new and improved client configuration support allows fine grained control over the client's DHCP, ARP, and ICMP operations, overriding, appending, or prepending to DHCP options, and the setting of default hostnames, subnet masks, and interface MTU. An embedded Scheme interpreter (Guile) in the client now allows the user to extend the client to handle more DHCP options than just basic networking options. Linux, NetBSD, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and Solaris are supporter, and numerous bugfixes were made.
