Dear Sir or Madam;

Thank you for your creating 9.0-Currnet releasenotes page,

I have a comment on this page.
I think the below feature (not exact text) should be included in the
release note as
IPv6 network is getting popular.
I owe you an apology if the above URL is
not the latest 9.0 release notes and the latest one has already included the
below content.

MFC r200871:
 Use ALLOW_NEW_SOURCES and BLOCK_OLD_SOURCES to signal a join or leave
 with SSM MLDv2 by default.
 This is current practice and complies with RFC 4604, as well as being
 required by production IPv6 networks in Japan.
 The behaviour may be disabled by setting the net.inet6.mld.use_allow
 sysctl/tunable to 0.

The above text are excerpted from "Revision" in

Best regards,

Hideki Yamamoto
