Release Notes: This release adds an integrated DHCP daemon to the DNS proxy. This provides a smaller and more configurable solution than the previous dnsmasq + dhcpd system. Dnsmasq can still function as a pure caching DNS proxy for users who do not require DHCP.
Release Notes: This release adds IPv6 support. On IPv6-enabled boxes, dnsmasq can both talk to upstream servers via IPv6 and offer DNS service via IPv6. On dual-stack (IPv4 and IPv6) boxes, it speaks both protocols and can even act as IPv6-to-IPv4 or IPv4-to-IPv6 forwarder. There are also a few minor fixes and enhancements which make upgrading worthwhile for IPv4-only users.
Release Notes: This is a major rewrite to remove calls to gethostbyname and talk directly to the upstream servers instead. It now supports all DNS query types and honors Time to Live information. It can now be configured to cache DNS lookups for the machine on which it is running, and it supports automatic DNS configuration via PPP or DHCP. It is now available in a Debian package.
