Dear Colleagues,

On Saturday 30 August 2014, AFRINIC deployed a new code for its WHOIS database, WHOIS 2.0 (v 1.73).

This version is fully IPv6 compatible and enables update via the command line interface as well as a RESTful API.  In addition, with the deployment of  WHOIS 2.0,  the AFRINIC team has also implemented two policies that were recently ratified:
	1. AFPUB-2012-V4-001-DRAFT-01 Anycast Assignements in the AFRINIC region  http://afrinic.net/en/community/policy-development/policy-proposals/701-anycast-assignments-in-the-afrinic-region-afpub-2012-v4-001-draft-01-last-call
	2. AFPUB-2012-DNS-001-DRAFT-02 No Reverse Unless Assigned 

We hope that WHOIS 2.0 will contribute greatly to the management of Internet number resources in our region.

Best regards,
Neriah Sossou
Head IT & Engineering, AFRINIC Ltd.
