A new version of the ARIN command line interface scripts (ARINcli) has
been released, version 0.6.0.

This version includes the following enhancements and changes:

* rdns - a script to help modify reverse DNS delegations. This script
allows for editing of a single delegation and can read multiple DNS zone
files for updating of multiple reverse DNS delegations, including both the
NS and DS records.

* arinreports - a script for requesting whowas, associations, and
reassignment reports from ARIN.

* the name of this suite of scripts has been changed from ARINr to ARINcli
as that is more descriptive of their utility from a user's perspective.

Additionally, other minor fixes and modifications have been made to the
existing scripts, which are:

* arininfo - queries ARIN's Whois-RWS and displays the information in a
tree format

* poc -  creates, modifies, and deletes Point of Contacts (POCs).

* ticket - downloads, displays and responds to Reg-RWS / ARIN Online

These scripts are available under the open-source, BSD-style ISC License.
They should be considered beta-quality and do not yet encompass the full
capabilities of ARIN's restful services.

Man-page style documentation, including instructions for obtaining the
scripts either via a Git repository or downloadable ZIP file, can be found

Chief Engineer, ARIN
