Thanks for answering my questions. It's enough for me to know what features
in the first release would be.

The first release will probably not support prefix delegation. A lot of
people are interested in it so we will probably add it shortly after.

Yes, this is something interesting because users can use it in IPv6 routers
for prefix delegation.

The first release will support both stateful and stateless IPv6 address

I'm not sure exactly how Dibbler's DHCPv6 DDNS works, so I can't answer
We're adding support for the FQDN option, which allows the client and server
to negotiate who updates the reverse and forward DNS.

Are you pertaining to http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4704.txt for your DHCPv6
DNS dynamic update?

You can specify this via the "-lf" command line option. I had not considered
making the default name separate for IPv4 and IPv6, but that does make

Sincerely Yours,
