A new re-designed DHCP management UI that helps to manage multiple methods of organizing IPs across Windows, CISCO and ISC DHCP vendors
Management of ISC DHCP subnet options, ranges and pools (New to ISC)
Monitoring of ISC shared network containers and their subnet utilization

But that's not all. We were listening to you, our users who requested support for more complicated configuration scenarios on DHCP servers. This advanced scenarios typically requiring setup for specific DHCP Options. IPAM v4.1 can namely do following:
Monitor and manage over 180 (RFC 2132) DHCP options on Cisco, Microsoft and ISC DHCP servers
New UI for DHCP options management with data type validator and text translation of numeric value of each option (you don't have look into RFC)
Automatic detection of supported/unsupported options per DHCP vendor
Both-way sync between IPAM and DHCP server.
