That is great news!! Thank you.

Can I confess that I am losing track of the differences between 3.0.7
and 3.1.1 and request the kindness of a pointer to an overview?

			Changes since 3.0.6

- Fixed "--version" flag in dhcrelay.

- Clarified error message when lease limit exceeded

- Fixed a buffer overflow error which could have allowed a denial
  of service under unusual server configurations

- Bug in octal parsing fixed. Thanks to Bernd Fuhrmann for the report
  and fix.

- The warning logged when an address range doesn't fit in the subnets
  they were declared has been updated to be more helpful and identify
  typo in configuration that created the spanning addresses.

- The 'min-secs' configuration parameter's log message has been updated
  be more helpful.

- Fixed a bug in which write_lease() might report a failure incorrectly.

- Bug in server configuration parser caused server to get stuck on
  startup for certain bad pool declarations. Thanks to Guillaume
  Knispel for the bug report and fix.

- Fixed file descriptor leak on listen failure. Thanks to Tom Clark.

- Failover binding acks are now transmitted before new binding updates
  may, very rarely, be related to a lease on the ack queue).  This
  a lease database inconsistency bug, as the remote system relies upon
  most recent message it received from its peer.

- POOLREQ messages received within 30 seconds of one another are

- 'lease imbalance' messages are not logged unless rebalance was
  attempted ("ten percent" rule).

- A bug was fixed where the 'giaddr' may be used to find the client's
  rather than its own 'ciaddr'.

- A log message was introduced to clarify the situation where a failover
  'address' parameter (the server's local address) did not resolve to an
  IPv4 address.

- When server is configured with options that it overrides, a warning is
  issued when the configuration file is read, rather than at the time
  option is overridden. This was important, because the warning was
  every time the option was overridden, which could create a lot of
  unnecessary logging.

- When a failover server suspects it has encountered a peer running a
  version 3.1.x failover server, a warning that the failover wire
  is incompatible is printed.

- The failover server no longer issues a floating point error if it
  a previously undefined option code.

- A memory leak when using omapi has been fixed.
