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!
