ISC DHCP 3.0.1 RC11 is now available.  This release fixes a potential
vulnerability with versions of the ISC 3 DHCP server.  A patch release
V3.0pl2 is also available for sites running V3.0 that do not wish to
upgrade to the 3.0.1 release candidates at this time.

The releases are available now from :

			Changes since 3.0.1rc10

- Potential buffer overflows in minires repaired.

- A change to the linux client script to use /bin/bash, since /bin/sh may
  not be bash.

- Some missing va_end cleanups thanks to a patch from Thomas Klausner.

- A correction of boolean parsing syntax validation - some illegal syntaxes
  that worked before are now detected and produce errs, some legal syntaxes
  that errored before will now work properly.

- Some search-and-replace errors that caused some options to change their
  names was repaired.

- Shu-min Chang of the Intel corporation has contributed a perl script and
  module that converts the MS NT4 DHCP configuration to a ISC DHCP3
  configuration file.

- Applied the remainder of the dhcpctl memory leak patch provided by Bill
  Squier at ReefEdge, Inc.  (groo at

- Missing non-optional failover peer configurations will now result in a soft
  error rather than a null dereference.
