14.2.X
2  * hexls output must be consistent sperated by '=>', useful for utilities like awk
3    Author: Bas van der Vlies
4
54.2.0
6  * Added a new option for commandline and pxeconfig.conf:
7    - commandline:
8        -H, --skip-hostname-lookup-error When hostname lookup fails, skip it (default: False)
9
10    - pxeconfig.conf
11        skip_hostname_lookup_error: 1
12
13    This is mostly used for cluster when you just want to install all the nodes, but not all
14    racks/blade-chassis are equally filled with nodes.
15    Author: Bas van der Vlies
16
174.1.0:
18  * Added two new configuration options for pxeconfig.conf file: closes #17
19     - client_script_hook_add    : The script that must be run when we create
20                                 a pxeconfig file for a host(s). This option
21                                 replaces client_script_hook.
22     - client_script_hook_remove : The script that must be run wehn we remove
23                                 a pxeconfig file for a host(s)
24
25    Both options are useful for firewall setups. To open/close ports.

37  * Improved error handeling for AdvanceParser.py

50  * pxemenu has been updated. See:
51     - INSTALL-pxemenu
52     - README-pxemenu
53     - Updates for SYSLINUX version 4.02.
54     - Some obsolete menus (UBC,Ghost) have been removed. 
55    Author: Ole Holm Nielsen
56
57  * Added support for hosts that only can use mac address for
58    pxelinux configuration.  This is used in environments
59    where dynamic ip's are used. To enable this you must set in
60    pxeconfig.conf:
61        [DEFAULT]
62        arp_command        : /usr/sbin/arp -n
63
64
65    You can use host labels as shortcuts.  Edit pxelinux.conf and add
66    for eg:
67        [bas]
68        mac_address: 00:19:b9:de:21:47
69
70    Now you can use:
71        'pxeconfig bas' instead of 'pxeconfig 00:19:b9:de:21:47'
72
73    You can mix hostnames and mac-addresses on the command line

94    for the pxeconfig.conf file
95   - daemon_script_hook
96   - client_script_hook
97
98    We use these scripts to open (client_script_hook) and close
99    (daemon_script_hook) ports on the firewall. So not everybody can do
100    an rsync or use a bittorrent client to get useful info.
