   An update that has 14 recommended fixes can now be


   This update for wicked fixes the following issues:

   - dhcp6: Add an address-length (DHCLIENT6_ADDRESS_LENGTH) ifcfg option,
     which allows to specify an explicit prefix-length to use for the DHCPv6
     address and override detection using RA prefix info and a default to
     /128. Previously the default value was set to a /64 address
     prefix-length. (bsc#1132280)
   - time: Use boot time for timer instead of real time to avoid getting
     stuck when bringing up the network. (bsc#1129986)
   - systemd: Change the service to depend on udev settle service as calling
     udevadm settle directly caused systemd to kill wicked services.
     (bsc#1136034, bsc#1132774)
   - bridge: Honor ifcfg LLADDR and set link address. (bsc#1042123,
   - rfkill: Fix an issue where wicked was unable to set up the Wifi module.
   - dhcp4: Fix an intermittent hang during network setup by cleaning up the
     defer timer pointer when timeout. (bsc#1142214)
   - dhcp4: Make sure custom routing options are respected. (bsc#1132326)
   - dhcp6: Initial support to request prefix for delegations. (jsc#SLE-5936)
   - dhcp6: Set the noprefixroute address option. (bsc#1132280)
   - dhcp6: Omit noprefixroute with address-length. Allow to assume that the
     address prefix-length override specified in the config is a valid
     on-link prefix length, to let the kernel create a route for this prefix.
   - dhcp6: Differentiated mode=auto resolving from RA. Fix to not trigger n
     error when ipv6 RA is not available or the received RA disables dhcp
     while mode is set to auto, but to deliver a 'deferred' result.
   - libwicked: Fix versioning and packaging by shipping the internal helper
     library inside the wicked package itself. (bsc#1143182, bsc#1132977)
