Before this update one would have to mess with ifstated and have it start and stop dhclient as needed. Now we can just let dhclient live happily in the background. A very nice day for the road-warrior.
On the other side of the DHCP equation, dhcpd(8) has been getting some attention as well. Bob Beck (beck@) has added some spamd like syncing to dhcpd such that you can have two identically configured daemons running (for example, a CARP environment) and have some fail-over action on failure. The leases will be maintained via the sync and allows for a bit of redundancy.
