dhcpcd-7.0.0-rc4 has been released with the following changes:

  • Mark routes as set by RA/DHCP in Linux
  • Don't flush prefix routes/routers if kernel does not support RA
  • Remove OpenBSD route labels
  • dhcp: improve errors around UDP checksum failure
  • dhcp: announce existing addresses before rebooting
  • bpf: rework loop so that we can close/reopen fd inside and abort
  • ipv6nd: don't handle NA/RA for non active interfaces
  • dhcp6: listen on all addresses in non master mode
  • dhcpcd-run-hooks: set protocol in dhcpcd, don't guess
  • Ensure that xid is unique across all interfaces
  • dhcp6: redirect message to interface which uses the xid
  • bsd: strip scope from LL addresses when detecting their addition
  • ipv6nd: fix address lifetime overflow on carrier up
  • dhcp6: fix confirmation of lease on carrier up
  • eloop: fix signal catching before eloop is started on Linux

I was hoping this would be the final 7.0.0 release, but two of the above fixes were quite invasive. Maybe there will be zero issues at Christmas!

OK, it's not really in the news, but today I got a message of apprecation for what openresolv does.

Thanks for openresolv. If only the whole world used it... 

Rome wasn't built in a day. But it's getting there - openresolv can be found in NetBSD and FreeBSD base systems. It's available in most other OS's package respositories to at least depend upon.

Thanks
