* Fixed parsing issues with third-party library used by the CIDR calculator.

* Completed work to transition ARIN systems to a stateless architecture 
to reduce timeouts for users and lessen downtime required for system 
maintenance. Note: As part of this change, the server used with some 
REST calls (that download files using your API key) has changed. ARIN 
has put redirects in place, but you may need to manually configure your 
scripts to point to the correct server. The server has changed for these 
commands from account.arin.net to accountws.arin.net. The affected 
commands are:
  - Downloading Bulk Whois Data – command examples:

- Downloading the Report of Resources with No Valid POCs – command example:
