staticDHCPd 1.3.4

staticDHCPd 1.3.4 is out and you can grab it at Google Code or uguu.ca.

It offers a large number of new features over 1.2.0, inspired by needs that have arisen over the past several days:

  • Support for DHCPDECLINE and DHCPRELEASE events
  • Diagnostic features to help find misconfigured clients in networks, particularly those that would interfere with normal operation of a network or a dynamic DHCP server
  • Improvements to how event-messages are formatted, making it easier to read through the event-log
  • Less-memory-intense caching logic without sacrificing speed
  • AUTHORITATIVE mode, which allows unknown MACs to be NAKed, rather than ignored, fixing an incompatibility with some vendors’ non-RFC-compliant relays
  • Support for having logfiles written to disk with the current timestamp as a suffix, simplifying the process of creating status snapshots
