As an aside, C++ and Antrl4 are tools, not features. Using "cool tools" just because they're "cool" is the sign of cargo cult programming.
If you want to look at cargo cult programming, look no further than Kea, the "new" ISC DHCP server.
FreeRADIUS has support for many, many, more databases than that. FreeRADIUS can put leases into *any* SQL database. Or Redis. And, in v4, we get 2-5x the performance of Kea for DHCP leases. With a *real* policy language, that doesn't require people to write C++ plugins to do anything complex.
So yes, FreeRADIUS is a *better* and *more configurable* and a *faster* DHCP server than one written using "cool tools".
I have no idea what "modern behaviour and features" means. And I doubt that the original poster does, either. If he had, he would have explained instead of posting inflammatory and content-free comments.
