Hi all,

I've released a radvd 1.1 release candidate, get it at:


'rpmbuild -ta radvd-1.1rc1.tar.gz' will produce RPMs.

Testing is welcome.  New patches are also welcome.

Unless I get feedback, this is probably going to be released in early 


01/12/2007      Require that interface is also 'RUNNING' instead of just
                 'UP', except if IgnoreIfMissing is enabled.  The reason is
                 that at least some recent Linux kernels do not generate
                 link-local addresses before interface is running and as
                 a result, the startup may fail if network cable is unplugged
                 in any case.

                 Note: this could break deployments with some very old
                 kernels, see more info at:


25/10/2007      Implement automatically selecting and advertising an
                 interface address, see radvd.conf(5) for more.  Add
                 a warning about not being able to set interface
                 variables with non-root user.  Relax interface naming
                 a bit.

25/06/2007      Send prefix, route and RDNSS options (matters if there
                 are many RDNSS options) in the same order they appear
                 in the configuration; add support for AdvDefaultLifetime
                 in radvdump (patches from C. Scott Ananian)
