Spread the love

MaraDNS can, as the name suggests, set up a DNS. The program is written with the premise of creating a secure and compact DNS. For example, it uses its own library to prevent buffer overflows and does not run in a root account but as an unprivileged user. The developer has released version 1.1.59 in the unstable branch with the following changes:

Version 1.1.59:

  • Cygwin port fix: ipv6 not compiled in authonly mode on Cygwin (Cygwin doesn’t yet have ipv6)

Version 1.1.58:

  • Cleaned up the FreeBSD compile
  • Cleaned up the Cygwin compile; MaraDNS compiles on Cygwin again

  • Updated the Mingw32 patch
  • Fixed issue with install script (see mailing list)

Version 1.1.57:
