ISC DHCP 3.0.5rc2 is now available for download.  This release is a
maintenance release that seeks to correct bugs introduced in 3.0.4
or prior.  The most important of these bugs is for 64-bit time_t
systems that was introduced in 3.0.4.

This second Release Candidate addresses two flaws discovered by users,
one introduced in this release, the other a protocol violation introduced
in 3.0.4.

If you are upgrading from ISC DHCP 3.0.3 or prior and are using
failover, please take special care of the 'atsfp' values now included
on failover-controlled leases.  See the RELNOTES file included in
the distribution for more information.

			Changes since 3.0.5rc1

- A bug was repaired in fixes to the dhclient which saught to run the
  dhclient-script with the 'EXPIRE' state should it receive a NAK in
  response to a REQUEST.  The client now iterates the PREINIT state
  after the EXPIRE state, so that interfaces that might be configured
  'down' can be brought back 'up' and initialized.

- DHCPINFORM handling for clients that properly set ciaddr and come to the
  server via a relay agent has been repaired.
