2.3.0 - 2017-11-20
*** Bugfixes:
* Comments at the end of RRs using RFC 3597 syntax now work properly with
whitespace, fixes Github issue 147.
* UDPv6 listening sockets no longer fail fatally if IPV6_DONTFRAG cannot be
set on them, possibly fixing Github issue 115 for some OpenVZ+Debian
*** Features:
* any_mitigation - New boolean config option, default true. When
enabled, gdnsd sends empty truncated responses to ANY queries over
UDP, which mitigates their use in amplified reflection attacks and
forces legitimate clients to use TCP for these queries. In the
future, the behavior of this option may be relaxed in combination with
other more-general mitigation strategies such as RRL and/or cookies.
* The configuration language's $include{} directive now supports
including whole directories or glob wildcards. The previous behavior
was to treat the include pathname as a singular literal filename. The
new behavior first checks whether the pathname is the literal name of
an existing directory. If so, all files within will be included (as
if the glob pattern "/*" were appended), and it will not be an error
if no matching files exist. Otherwise, the pathname is treated as a
glob wildcard match, and it will be an error if no matches exist.
* plugin_extmon has a new per-service option 'max_proc' which defaults to
zero. If non-zero, this sets the limit on the number of concurrent
commands that will be run. If the limit is exceeded, excess commands are
rescheduled for 0.1 seconds later. After a few runs, the processes will
be spread out enough to run without running into the limit. This avoids
thundering herds of subprocess executions at startup in large
configurations. Contributed by ScaleEngine / Alan Jude.
* CAA records are now natively supported in the normal rdata format from
RFC 6844. CAA records continue to be supported in RFC 3597 generic
format as well, although this is not recommended going forward.
* plugin_geoip has a new top-level option "undefined_datacenters_ok", which
allows resources to leave some of their map's datacenters undefined.
Enabling this can be dangerous, see warnings in the documentation.
2.2.4 - 2016-04-14
* libmaxminddb 1.2.0+ compatibility, using the new interface.
* Note that libmaxminddb's 1.2.0 release is a shared library runtime
