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 240.0.0.0/4 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.
