new version 0.97.4 was released today.

This version is a bugfix on top of 0.97.3 and includes only minor changes

- ipv6calc -m -i <IP>
    got now an IPV6CALC_CAPABILITIES line, displaying capabilities of
ipv6calc (handled now also by ipv6calcweb.cgi)

- ivp6calc/ipv6loganon/ipv6logstats/ipv6logconv -v -h
    displays help related to feature tokens

- build-options were extended by --with-ip2location-headers-fallback and
    Header files for GeoIP 1.4.8 and IP2Location 6.0.2 are included now
as a fallback for build with dynamic library load option (so one can
build ipv6calc without having GeoIP-devel or IP2Location-devel installed
- but later usable via the dynamic library load feature)

- man pages got a major update

*** news for Fedora and RHEL/CentOS users ***

Since I'm now new maintainer for the Fedora package I have access to the
koji build system.

It is planned to push ipv6calc also to EPEL6 and EPEL7 repos, perhaps
also into EPEL5 repo (RHEL/CentOS5 contains an old version of ipv6calc

Meanwhile, at least until koji system cleans up older binaries created
builds are available here:

EL5: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=7232783
EL6: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=7232794
EL7: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=7232839

F21: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=7232832

RPMS are created with --enable-ip2location --with-ip2location-dynamic
--with-ip2location-headers-fallback --enable-geoip --with-geoip-dynamic

So they work without or with GeoIP/IP2Location libraries installed on a
system - automagically enabling more features, once found (with related

Also ipv6calcweb.cgi is now packaged into a new subpackage for optional
installation directly into the web server's CGI directory.

RPMS also includes database update scripts

Have fun!
