    22 Jan 2019 • 1 min read

    dhcpcd-7.1.0 has been released with the following changes:

    • OpenBSD: works alongside slaacd(8)
    • NetBSD: sets SO_RERROR on to detect receive socket overflow
    • BSD: route improvements to avoid listening for own changes
    • BSD: avoid late address deletion messages by testing address existance
    • IP6: implement IP6 address sharing
    • BSD: catch UP/DOWN events when interfaces does support media changes
    • IPv4LL: remember old address when carrier is lost

    Many other minor fixes and documenation updates have been submitted by various community members for this release which is nice to see 😃 IP6 address sharing requies the kernel to avoid IPv6 ND messages from itself via nonce matching and/or hardware address matching because all kernels handle IP6 Duplicate Address Detection.
