Release Notes: Modest performance improvements of around 20% were made. A number of smaller and larger issues were fixed. Importantly, compatibility with recent gcc versions was restored. The new IPv6 root-servers are now picked up automatically. Finally, domains can now be forwarded to multiple IP addresses and ports.
Release Notes: This release contains two important security fixes, which should also solve the very rare reports of stability problems. Additionally, a new class of misconfigured domains will now always be resolved correctly, instead of intermittently.
Release Notes: This release, which powers over 40 million Internet connections, consists mostly of minor bugfixes, except on 64-bit platforms, where stability should be very much improved. Additionally, some small speedups ought to be noticeable.
Release Notes: This release consists almost entirely of fixes and speedups. Previous release candidates have been tested very thoroughly by some of the largest Internet providers in the world, which has allowed finding and addressing a number of corner-case bugs. Additionally, ANY queries would sometimes time out, while sending needless packets to authoritative name servers. Because of this, a quick upgrade is highly recommended.
Release Notes: This release candidate fixes several important bugs and contains a handful of performance improvements. Some of the bugfixes will also increase performance. Users are requested to test this release candidate, which is considered a very safe upgrade.
Release Notes: This release adds the ability to serve authoritative data to users, using a simple configuration. The contents of /etc/hosts can be published over DNS, which should allow many installations to do without zones at all. Full use is now made of any published IPv6 nameserver addresses. Other improvements have raised the cache hit rate and sped up Active Directory queries. RFC compliance was improved.
Release Notes: This release adds minor amounts of polish and generally improves the quality of implementation. This is the first release in full compliance with the "dns-anti-spoofing" draft RFC. Unless problems crop up, this release should become 3.1-final.
Release Notes: This version can serve authorative zones or forward queries for domains so configured to external nameservers. IPv6 outgoing nameservers can now be used if they are faster or as fast as IPv4 nameservers (though this is disabled by default). Support was added for exporting knowledge from /etc/hosts to the local subnet, without further zone configurations. Support for non-UNIX operating systems was improved.
Release Notes: This release consists entirely of small fixes to 3.0. These include improved support for the stock Debian 2.6.8 kernel, Solaris 8, and Solaris 10 on x86_64. A bug that could make the recursor crash on receiving a malformed packet was fixed. Upgrading is highly recommended.
Release Notes: This version is only slightly different from the last -pre3 prerelease. From this release onwards, x86_64 rpms and debs are available.
