Well I am about ready to release the 0.9.1-beta candidate and would like you all to know what features this release will entail.

During testing I ran into problems with administrators configuring various subnets that the server was not configured to listen on. To eliminate this problem I am working on integrating a feature to process a list of available interfaces the ISC DHCPD service is can currently listen on as well as process vital information regarding total traffic vs. traffic allocated to DHCPD ACK, REQ, packets etc.

Another feature I am planning on integrating is a lease management portion to allow release, renewal of assigned leases for those that utilize the address pooling features.

I have already integrated some simple graphing charts for administrative and user level accounts to view the amount of static hosts assigned to each subnet as well as the amount of static hosts assigned to each pxe group to allow easier methods of service monitoring. More graphs for monitoring the DHCPD traffic vs. total server traffic will be available soon, including graphs regarding pooled addresses and leases in use etc.

Feedback, feature requests, bug reports are always welcome.
