Version 3.3 of rp-pppoe has been released.  It is the successor to 3.2.

rp-pppoe is a user-mode (and kernel mode, on Linux 2.4) client, relay

kernels, NetBSD and Solaris.  rp-pppoe is released under the GNU
General Public License, and can be obtained from:

        http://www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe/

Changes from Version 3.2 to 3.3:

o Client works on Solaris again.  It was broken in 3.2.

o Added DEFAULTROUTE=yes|no option to configuration file.

o Server parses address pool file better.

o Server address pool allows ranges of addresses on a line: a.b.c.d-e

o Added "-d" (=debug) and "-P" (=check pool file syntax) options to
  pppoe-server.

1. rp-pppoe 3.1 -- Robust PPPoE suite for Linux

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Version 3.1 of rp-pppoe has been released.  It is the successor to 3.0.

rp-pppoe is a user-mode (and kernel mode, on Linux 2.4) client and
server for the Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet, a protocol used
by many ADSL service providers.  It runs on standard Linux kernels
NetBSD and Solaris.  rp-pppoe is released under the GNU General Public
License, and can be obtained from:

        http://www.roaringpenguin.com/pppoe/

Changed from Version 3.0 to 3.1:

o Security fix to server.  It now correctly rejects PADT's from incorrect
MAC addresses.  If you are using the server, you are strongly urged to upgrade.

o New server features: Server can now listen on multiple interfaces.  It
can randomize session numbers, and delays reuse of a session number as long
as possible.

o Kernel-mode PPPoE is better-documented, and works with Michal Ostrowski's
latest patched PPP suite (ppp-2.4.1-pppoe2.tgz).
