MaraDNS & Deadwood update


April 15 2011

In today's snapshot of MaraDNS, I have fixed an error reported by Bryan Duff. In particular, instead of replying with "not implemented" when given an IXFR or AXFR query over UDP, MaraDNS now returns "truncated".

In today's snapshot of Deadwood, I have refined the heuristics of how to handle empty packets by only treating them as "this host does not exist" if the user asked for an AAAA (IPv6 IP) record. This resolves a problem Deadwood has resolving the names when one of the three upstream DNS servers replied to requests with a REFUSED DNS reply.

They can be downloaded here:

The next day I will work on MaraDNS is two weeks from today: Friday, April 29 2011.
