ndjbdns-1.05.5

Hi, happy new year! 🙂

I’m happy to announce the latest release of New DJBDNS version 1.05.5. This release is special. It includes two very important security patches reported here -> BZ#838965. These patches protect dnscache resolver from cache poisoning attacks. Please do # yum update to this latest release asap.

Second, I’m pleased to introduce my new co-maintainer – Mr Simone Caronni aka Slaanesh. Slaanesh is an avid Fedora user and an expert developer. He recently submitted useful patches for NDJBDNS and offered to co-maintain the package. It’s encouraging to receive patches and comments from your users. Slaanesh’s offer to co-maintain the package was overwhelming. When I look back, I think it’s a significant progress from a point when nobody wanted to review NDJBDNS for years, to having a co-maintainer for the package. Please join me in welcoming Simone(Slaanesh) aboard the NDJBDNS wagon:

    Welcome aboard Simone! Thanks so much for being the super NDJBDNS user. 🙂

I have already pushed the latest NDJBDNS package to the Fedora stable repositories, soon you should be able to do

    # yum install ndjbdns
    # yum update ndjbdns

Another good news is, NDJBDNS is now available as EPEL 5/6 package(courtesy Simone:). Now you can use NDJBDNS on the Enterprise Linux Platforms of your choice.

Lastly, I want to thank Mark Johnson for reporting the bugs and helping me with code reviews and useful updated information. I also wish to thank all NDJBDNS users for the constant encouragement via comments and patches.

Thanks so much and happy new year! 🙂
