Release Notes: The -A "address-check" mode has been fixed so that it only reports true problems, not mis-matched "official" hostnames since there is no such thing in the DNS. Host no longer needs to know the system hostname, though it will warn if it can't be found and verified and if '-P' doesn't give an alternate preferred nameserver domain. The undocumented --dump and --load disk cache options work (again?). Various other minor bugs, some old, some new, have also been fixed.
Release Notes: This release provides improved compatability with BIND-9 zone transfers. Minor improvements have been made to the way the authority section is displayed. The rblookup script has also been updated. This release modernizes the code somewhat, leaning towards using primarily Standard C and POSIX APIs, and also provides better compatability with the modern BIND-8 resolver libraries (including the version now supplied in BIND-9). It has been tested on NetBSD, FreeBSD, Mac OS X, SunOS-5.x, SunOS-4.1, and BSD/OS-1.1.
Release Notes: This version features a few minor fixes necessary for the way BIND-9 returns authoritative NS records, as well as a feature to use the parent zone's nameservers for queries. It also includes a rewritten and updated rblookup script, as well as a new nscheck script to assist in verifying NS and glue A records in parent zones.
