Updated support for PS4 to IPv6.
Updated the PS3’s device driver to support dynamic IP address assignment to a single subnet.
Updated an existing kernel driver to enable support for IPv4-capable devices.
Updated a new kernel driver for the Xbox 360 controller to support automatic IPv6 IPv4 address assignment.
Updated all network drivers to the latest versions of the OpenFlow and NFS networking stack.
Added a network-level option to the device driver that allows you to specify which subnet of the network your device will be assigned to.
Added the ability to manually specify IPv6 address assignments to devices that do not support IPv4 addressing.
Updated OpenFlow kernel to support support IPv 6 addresses.
Added NAT support to IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Updated NFS driver to use a new IPv4 header that allows it to be more robust when handling IPv4 requests.
Updated device driver for OpenFlow to support NAT.
Updated network drivers for OpenVPN and Novell’s VPN server to support more IPv4 options.
Updated networking driver for NAT to support IPv4-only routing for IPv5.
Updated configuration and kernel sources to support using IPv6 addresses on IPv6 devices.
Added configuration options to enable IPv6 for the network you are trying to access.
Updated drivers for the Sony Xperia X Compact and Xperia XZ Premium to support multiple IPv4 protocols and address types.
Updated openvpn driver to include support for multicast IPv4.
Updated Network Manager to support multicast address assignment in IPv6 settings.
Updated source code of openvpserver.conf and openvtserver.py to include a new config option for IPv10 addressing.
Update kernel source to support TCP/IPv6 multicast addressing for IPv3, IPv4, IPv6, IPv8, and IPv10 addresses.
Fixed a regression in the OpenVPN kernel that prevented IPv4 traffic from being correctly routed to IPv3 and IPv5 traffic.
Fixed an issue that caused the network connection to fail if you connected a network to a network that was not IPv6 capable.
Updated Kernel sources to fix a regression that prevented some kernel sources from using IPv4 protocol settings correctly.
Updated TCP/UDP drivers to fix an issue with a connection timeout during a NAT operation.
Updated sources for OpenVpn and OpenVPN Server to include the OpenSSL library for IPvv6 support.
Fixed the IPv4 router address assignment issue that was causing some IPv4 routers to incorrectly assign IPv4 routes.
Updated Netgear’s r6250 firmware to update to the next-generation RTL-SDR2 codec, support for 802.11n, and support for IPsec encryption.
