1.71.1. RHEA-2011:0419: jwhois enhancement update
An updated jwhois package that adds one enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The jwhois package provides a whois client which is used to obtain information about domain names and IP addresses from whois servers.
* Previously, jwhois did not contain the whois server details for the dotEmarat extension. Due to this issue, whois queries for these extensions were incorrectly directed to whois.internic.net. With this update, the configuration file correctly directs queries for the dotEmarat domains to whois.aeda.net.ae. (BZ#663972
All users of whois clients are advised to upgrade to this updated package which adds this enhancement.
