Consider replacing ISC DHCP server with KEA DHCP
I think it would be a good idea to at least take a look at kea dhcp by ISC. It seems to be a much better solution for pfsense than ISC DHCP.

It looks like Facebook migrated to Kea DHCP. Should be for a good reason [[https://code.facebook.com/posts/845909058837784/using-isc-kea-dhcp-in-our-data-centers/]]

Any progress on Kea dhcp? It looks like ISC has allocated more resources to Kea and put the legacy ISC dhcp in the backlog. Right now pfsense 2.4.4 is using a deprecated dhcp version(4.3.6). If it's not feasible to integrate Kea this year please consider upgrading ISC dhcp to 4.4.1 and expose new features in the gui (ddns-dual-stack-mixed-mode, ddns-update-style standard etc)

For what it's worth, for my dayjob, run ISC's internal office network with a pair of pfsense boxen (official hardware, because we like Netgate).
Right now, we're using Kea internally on a separate machine but it would be nice to have it as simple as it is with PfSense.
If NetGate or the pfsense developers would like to try and work out direct access to our Kea developers, please let me know.
