Release Notes
We completed a number of infrastructure improvements and bug fixes, including the following updates.

ARIN Online Updates

- Updated financial and billing functions in ARIN Online.
- Fixed zonegen timing issue that caused slow publishing of zones for ERX snippets received from other RIRs.

ARIN Whois Updates
The URL for Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) bootstrap queries has changed to https://rdap-bootstrap.arin.net/bootstrap. If you have queries that use our RDAP bootstrap server, please update your links. Note that the current URL, https://rdap.arin.net/bootstrap, will be supported for 90 days, and that support will end on 18 February, 2021. Please use this 90-day period to migrate to the new URL. After 90 days, the old URL (https://rdap.arin.net/bootstrap) will no longer be supported.

RDAP Bootstrap Server Software Updates
The new RDAP bootstrap server version 2.0.1 is available on github at https://github.com/arineng/rdap_bootstrap_server/releases/tag/2.0.1  and the README file is available at https://github.com/arineng/rdap_bootstrap_server/blob/2.0.1/README.md 

This RDAP server software version includes the following changes:

- Updated IANA bootstrap files to the latest version
- Provided a built-in scheduler to configure downloading of IANA bootstrap files at certain intervals (fulfilling a request for this functionality)
- Added ability to build a Docker image of the software
- Added ability to run as a Spring Boot application
- Upgraded to build against Java 11 or higher

Notice of Upcoming nicinfo Release

To comply with the RDAP bootstrap URL update, our RDAP client, nicinfo, will be updated soon. We suggest that users update to nicinfo version 1.5.0 when it is released. More information about nicinfo is available on github at https://github.com/arineng/nicinfo  – if you are logged in to github, you can select the Watch icon to be notified of new releases.
