MaraDNS testing release


July 20 2013

A few days ago, I fixed a bug in Deadwood; a very rare DNS packet would cause a name to not resolve:
I have now made a formal testing release with the seven-line patch to fix this bug, MaraDNS-2.0.07c (Deadwood 3.2.03c):
This will probably become the stable MaraDNS/Deadwood release in September or October.

While not a critical security bug, I consider name resolution bugs in Deadwood important, and may do out-of-band updates to fix them. Otherwise, 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.
