staticDHCPd 2.0.0-rc1

staticDHCPd 2.0.0 is finally in rc1 status!

Anything in the 2.0.0 branch from r774+ now needs to be tested and the checklist will be tracked on the GoogleCode page. If, after two weeks, no issues are reported, an “rc1” source package will be published, and if that goes for another two weeks without issues, 2.0.0 will be considered stable and Debian packages and RPMs will be prepared.

At this point, no new features will be added until the system is stable (but please submit ideas to the issue-tracker anyway). Any non-bugfix commits will be things to prepare for the Debian/RPM packages or minor formatting tweaks.

    It’s been way more than two weeks since this post. Is there any chance to expect a release in a foreseeable future?

      It’s really just blocked on the checklist items on the Google Code main page. And a need to migrate to GitHub, since Google Code is dying.

      I was expecting more rapid testing feedback, but haven’t really heard much, so I became worried that there might be uncaught bugs due to lack of usage and then it sort of fell into the background. I just noticed that there were some patches submitted over the last couple of months, though, so I’m merging those now.

      If you can help verify that some of the features listed at the top of work, it’ll bring a real release a lot closer.

    I think I can. We’re really interested in a static DHCP server with MySQL backend in our ISP network, so I’m sure we can install it on one of our servers for verify some of that features.
    Where can I get the latest version of the code for this?

    1. Neil Tallim says:

      To check out the code from the development branch, issue the following:

      svn checkout staticdhcpd

      You can pull updates with svn up after that.

      The makerpms/makedebs scripts should work (I haven’t tested them in a while, though), but the code is also designed to be runnable directly from the source tree. The README should cover whatever you need to know to get started, covers all config options (databases are about halfway down the page), and I can assist though e-mail if you need help beyond that.
