Description (last modified by Douglas R. Reno)

New point version.

                        Changes since 4.3.5b1

- Corrected a bug which could cause the server to sporadically crash while
  loading lease files with the lease-id-format is set to "hex".  Our thanks
  to Jay Ford, University of Iowa for reporting the issue.
  [ISC-Bugs #43185]

- Eliminated a noisy, but otherwise harmless debug log statment that may
  appear during server startup when building with --enable-binary-leases
  and configuring multiple pools in a shared network.  Thanks to Fernando
  Soto from BlueCat Networks for reporting the issue and supplying a patch.
  [ISC-Bugs #43262]

                        Changes since 4.3.4

- Fixed util/bindvar.sh error handling.
  [ISC-Bugs #41973]

- Correct error message in relay to use remote id length instead
  of circuit id length.
  [ISC-Bugs #42556]

- Add logic to test directory Makefiles to avoid copying Attfile(s)
  when building within the source tree.  This eliminates a noisy but
  otherwise harmless error message when running "make check".
  [ISC-Bugs #41883]

- Leases are now scrubbed of certain prior use information when pool
  re-balancing reassigns them from one FO peer to the other.  This
  corrects an issue where leases that were offered but not used
  by the client retained the client hostname from the original
  client. Thanks to Pavel Polacek, Jan Evangelista Purkyne University
  for reporting the issue.
  [ISC-Bugs #42008]

- In the LDAP code and schema add some missing '6' characters to use
  the v6 instead of the v4 versions.  Thanks to Denis Taranushin for
  reporting this issue and supplying its patch.
  [ISC-Bugs #42666]

- Correct how the pick-first-value expression is written to a lease
  file.  Previously it was written as a concat expression due to
  a cut and paste error.
  [ISC-Bugs #42253]

- Modify the DDNS code to clean up the PTR record even if there
  are issues while cleaning up the A or AAAA records.
  [ISC-Bugs #23954]

- Added global configuration parameter, abandon-lease-time, which determines
  the amount of time a lease remains abandoned.  The default is 84600 seconds.
  Additionaly, the server now conducts a ping check (if ping checks are
  enabled) prior to offering an abandoned lease to client.  Our thanks to
  David Zych at University of Illinois for reporting the issue and working
  with us to produce a viable solution.
  [ISC-Bugs #41815]

- Correct handling of interface names during interface discovery. This
  addresses an issue where interface names of 15 characters in length
  could lead to crashes or interface recognition errors during startup
  of dhcpd, dhclient, and dhcrelay.
  [ISC-Bugs #42226]

- Updates to contrib/dhcp-lease-list.pl to make it more friendly.
  The updates are: looking for the lease file in more places and skipping
  the "processing complete" output when creating machine readable
  output.  Thanks to Cameron Paine (cbp at null dot net) for the
  patch.
  [ISC-Bugs #42113]
- When reusing a lease for dhcp-cache-threshold return the hostname
  to the original lease.  Also if the host pointer, UID or hardware address
  change don't allow reuse of the lease.
  Thanks to Michael Vincent for reporting this and helping us
  verify the problem and fix.
  [ISC-Bugs #42849]

- Change dmalloc to use a size_t as the length argument to bring it
  in line with the call it will make to malloc().
  [ISC-Bugs #40843]

- If the failover socket can't be bound, close it.  Otherwise if the
  user configures an incorrect address in the failover stanza the
  server will continue to open new sockets every 90 seconds until
  it runs out.
  [ISC-Bugs #42452]

- Add DHCPv4-mode, dhcrelay command line options, "-iu" and "-id", that
  allow interfaces to be upstream or downstream respectively.  Upstream
  interfaces will accept and forward only BOOTP replies, while downstream
  interfaces will accept and forward only BOOTP requests.
  [ISC-Bugs #41547]

- Clean up some memory references in the vendor-class construct.
  [ISC-Bugs #42984]

Note that the ISC website does not dictate that this has been released yet.

Got these release notes by decompressing the tarball and searching for the RELNOTES file.
