ARIN has released a new Routing Registry server. The new server is
available at rr-eval.arin.net (port 43) for whois queries and 
rr-eval.arin.net (port 4444) for mirroring the ARIN data. The changes 
made include:
     - Filtering out e-mail addresses and regular expressions from whois
       query replies
     - Support for common whois client flags
     - Separation of mirroring and whois components

For a list of instructions on querying, use the following command:
     whois -h rr-eval.arin.net HELP

These changes are for the server side only. Registering objects in 
ARIN's Routing Registry will continue to be processed as they are today.

An evaluation period will be running from today through 31 July
2006. The evaluation period provides the community the opportunity to 
explore the use of the new server, and modify any scripts in use that 
may depend upon it. After the evaluation period has ended, rr.arin.net 
ports will resolve to the new server for whois queries and mirroring.

Please send any feedback you may have to hostmaster at arin.net.
