Delphinusdnsd 1.4.0 Released

January 2nd, 2020

I have released delphinusdnsd 1.4.0. More info is found in the news.html entry. I'd like to thank everyone that contributed to this release (special thanks to FreeLogic and PiRATA).


Recent modification fixes answers for PowerDNS recursors

December 27th, 2019

Revision 1.98 of reply.c does more reply length checks and truncates when appropriate. Before it gave weird answers because it excluded RRSIG's and fit NSEC3's which was bogus. PowerDNS recursor noticed this as bogus and would mark all zones on those nameserver as bogus (as tested). Of course PowerDNS was right in this, and my code was wrong. Much thanks to Peng_ in #dns on freenode who helped me debug this problem.


1.4.0 Release in January after all

December 26th, 2019

I found some problems with delphinusdnsd and I'd like a week of testing before tagging it a release. I'm hoping for a release around or on January 2nd, 2020.


Last patch was wrong

December 22th, 2019

Sorry to bother you again, the last patch was wrong, I had edited the article directly but you wouldn't see it if you didn't reload it. Here it is again.

Security problem identified

December 22nd, 2019

Here is a patch, if you're using the daemon. Unfortunately this won't be available until the release day. I'm mindsearching if I'm going to put this release off until next year (2020).


Wishing you a happy time

December 20th, 2019

I'd like to wish you a happy december solstice and a merry christmas. I'm going away for 6 days from my work setup until the 26th when I'll be back in my apartment and doing the final check for delphinusdnsd and then releasing it.


Three days of testing remain

December 19th, 2019

Today I installed NetBSD and noticed I don't really know too much about this BSD. It was sorta hard. But I finally managed to install Delphinusdnsd to it and it prompted for some makefile changes. So then I'll be revisiting all test platforms tomorrow and on the 26th and 27th after which I will tag a release in the tree and make the tarball available. Unfortunately christmas is in the way or else I'd have a few more days. And commitments after the 27th until new years take away also a few more days. If you want to try out Delphinusdnsd grab a snapshot and test. It's likely not going to change in a big way in these last three days. If you'd rather wait for the 1.4 tarball, there is eight days left to wait for that.


1.4.0 Release likely on Friday December 27

December 15th, 2019

Due to some family commitments I have to move the release closer to christmas and the 29th which is what I would have chosen is a sunday. So it'll be the 27th (a friday). So the 26th and 27th will be final tests, next week the 16th throughout the 21st will be any last minute coding changes.


Seasons Greetings we got a XMAS Tree!

December 12th, 2019

Christmas is in 12+1 days (depending where you live). It's only proper that we provide a christmas tree to lay our presents under. I got one! It exploits the fact that dddctl query does not filter escape codes (will be fixed in 1.5.0 hopefully). Here is the xmas zone in case you wanted to use it:

zone "xmas" {
        xmas,txt,86400,"        ^[[32m^[[31;1m*^[[32m^[[0m"
        xmas,txt,86400,"       ^[[32m***^[[0m"
        xmas,txt,86400,"      ^[[32m**^[[31;1m*^[[32m**^[[0m"
        xmas,txt,86400,"     ^[[32m*^[[31;1m*^[[32m*****^[[0m"
        xmas,txt,86400,"    ^[[32m******^[[31;1m*^[[32m**^[[0m"
        xmas,txt,86400,"   ^[[32m***^[[31m*^[[32m*******^[[0m"
        xmas,txt,86400,"        ^[[33m*^[[0m"
Have a merry time! And please, don't drink and drive!


Exactly 21 days left for 1.4.0

December 10th, 2019

Seasons Greetings! We're on schedule for the 1.4.0 release in exactly three weeks. There is stuff that I'm aware isn't working right (like proper tsig responses), and if they don't make it in for 1.4.0 then they won't be in until 1.5.0. That's just the matter of fact. I'm testing delphinusdnsd on as many platforms and architectures as possible and every time I do I find something new that's either a bug or lacking. Realistically I don't have time to start any grand new things in these last three weeks. In exactly 2 weeks is christmas eve. This will be an interruption of a few days too.
