Release Notes: This release fixes confusion between NODATA and NXDOMAIN replies in the DNS server. It addresses a situation where dnsmasq could return NXDOMAIN for a query of type AAAA even though queries for the same domain for A or MX records would succeed. This bug is triggered by a change in behaviour between Windows XP SP1 and SP2, and has also been seen with certain mailer configurations. Note that the bug only occured for domains that were in dnsmasq's local configuration (from /etc/hosts or DHCP). Domains that were merely cached from upstream name servers never triggered the problem.
Release Notes: The main addition in this release is a new mode, --bind-dynamic, which both avoids binding the wildcard IP address and copes with dynamically created network interfaces, thus removing the main limitations of the two existing network modes.
Release Notes: This bugfix release fixes problems with the Router advertisement feature which could result in totally missing advertisements or no response to router solicitations.
Release Notes: This release has a lot of extra work on the DHCPv6 code that debuted in 2.60. Many bugs have been fixed and extra features added. The router advertisement feature is now much more configurable, and there's a mode that allows dnsmasq to make AAAA DNS records for hosts that use SLAAC IPv6 addresses and DHCP IPv4 addresses.
Release Notes: This release adds major new features, Lua scripting, and DHCPv6. The scripting interface has been expanded to allow DHCP scripting in Lua. The Lua interpreter is part of the dnsmasq process and remains resident, giving global variables that are persistent between calls to the script. The DHCP subsystem has been expanded to include support for DHCP for IPv6 addresses, as well as IPv6 Router advertisement.
Release Notes: This release addresses a couple of issues that have surfaced with dnsmasq-2.58, which could cause problems at startup with IPv6 link-local addresses. One is a regression in dnsmasq, and the other stems from a change in the behaviour of bridge interfaces in recent Linux kernels.
