                         Changes since 4.2.1b1

- Removed the restriction on using IPv6 addresses in IPv4 mode.  This
   allows IPv4 options which contain IPv6 addresses to be specified.  For
   example the 6rd option can be specified and used like this:
   [ISC-Bugs #23039]

         option 6rd code 212 = { integer 8, integer 8,
                                 ip6-address, array of ip-address };
         option 6rd 16 10 2001::,;

- Handle some DDNS corner cases better.  Maintain the DDNS transaction
   information when updating a lease and cancel any existing transactions
   when removing the ddns information.
   [ISC-Bugs #23103]

- Some fixes for LDAP
   [ISC-Bugs #21783] - Include lber library when building ldap
   [ISC-Bugs #22888] - Enable the ldap code when buidling common
   The above fixes are from Jiri Popelka at Red Hat.

- Modify the dlpi code to accept getmsg() returning a positive value.
   [ISC-Bugs #22824]
