Submission + - IANA releases reserved IPv4 addresses 1

klapaucjusz writes: The RFC Editor has just published RFC 5735, which allows allocation of much of the remaining IPv4 space: networks 14, 24, 39 and 128, which were previously reserved are no longer mentioned, and only remains.

While some of these deallocations are old news (network 14 was recovered in early 2008), this is perhaps a sign that the IPv4 address space is really getting exhausted, and that it's time to deploy IPv6.
