MaraDNS and Deadwood update
May 23 2013
I have updated both MaraDNS and Deadwood. Mainly Deadwood.
As I mentioned in
a previous blog entry,
I will, once every few months do nothing more than make sure all of the
tests run fine. That is what I did this month; both MaraDNS and
Deadwood pass all tests.
==A new Deadwood release==
I have been silently updating the version of Deadwood available at
http://maradns.org/deadwood as well as the version bundled with
MaraDNS. Deadwood 3.2.03a is simply Deadwood 3.2.03 with a
one-line bugfix patch
which I have been testing for the last three months; no problems have
arisen so I am declaring this patch stable.
Currently the numbering is a little strange:
- MaraDNS 2.0.07a is MaraDNS 2.0.07 with the one-line Deadwood patch applied.
- MaraDNS 2.0.07b is MaraDNS 2.0.07 with the one-line Deadwood patch, as well
as having the Windows Deadwood binary stripped (to keep it under 65,536
- Deadwood 3.2.03a is Deadwood 3.2.03 with the one-line patch
- MaraDNS-20130523 is the latest release: It’s MaraDNS 2.0.07 with the
one-line patch in Deadwood, as well as a copy of the actual patch
in deadwood-3.2.03a/update. This is the version which passed all SQA
tests this morning.
If nothing else, in early 2014 I will release MaraDNS 2.0.08 and Deadwood
3.2.04 with this patch.
MaraDNS-20130523 can be downloaded here:
Deadwood 3.2.03a is here:
I plan to work on MaraDNS/Deadwood again one day in a couple of months
unless a critical security bug with a CVE number is found.
Update: When I wrote this blog 2.0.07, not 2.0.06, was the current MaraDNS release.
