December 24 2011
Now that the year is wrapping up, here is a look at what I accomplished with
MaraDNS in 2011 and my future plans.
MaraDNS in 2011
Not counting the changes to Deadwood, in 2011 I made five different
releases that fixed some 12 different bugs and added three new minor
features to MaraDNS, as well as making revisions to the documentation.
Deadwood in 2011
In 2011, I applied 14 different bug fixes to Deadwood, added two new
minor features (--pid
for Duende and reject_ptr
added a lot of code to speed up Deadwood's resolution of host names,
made Deadwood's parser more pedantic, and made documentation as well as
Other 2011 accomplishments
, I went over the 2011 accomplishments
for my web page design. In addition, I did a lot of cool stuff at my day
job for Flight Lookup Services, managed to go the whole year without
making a single edit to the Wikipedia, said a (hopefully) final goodbye
to Usenet, and published some 143 blog entries which I hope you guys
have enjoyed reading.
I hope 2012 is a very prosperous year and that our economy finally
starts to significantly recover.
At this point, MaraDNS and Deadwood are finished. I have no plans to
add significant new features to either program. Right now, I have
received enough contributions to babysit the mailing list and fix
non-critical bugs until mid-March.
I will, of course, fix critical bugs without sponsorship, but support
above and beyond that depends on the amount of my users' contributions.
Merry Christmas everyone
I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
See you all in 2012!
