$KAME: CHANGELOG,v 1.1469 2001/01/06 08:40:50 jinmei Exp $

2001-01-06 JINMEI, Tatuya <>
* kame/kame/prefix/prefix.c: changed the default values of
prefixes to infinity. Finite default values were bad, because they
would be installed as the lifetimes of routers' addresses, which
would never increment and be invalidated in the future.

NOTE: if you use the kernel that has the change made on 2000-12-03
by Koji Kawano (see CHANGELOG.2000) on a router box, and use the
prefix command to assign addresses for the router, please be sure
to update the prefix command and reboot the router (or at least
reassign the addresses by the new prefix command). The lifetimes
might now be decresing, and will expire in the near future.

We'd even recommend you not to use the prefix command. It has
recently caused many problematic situations, and almost no one
understands the kernel prefix management routines well. You can do
the same thing by the ordinally ifconfig command. See the latest
rc.net6.sample file.

2001-01-06 JINMEI, Tatuya <>
* kame/kame/etc/rc.net6: prohibit the prefix command by default.
Since the command has recently caused many problems, we should
reconsider the prefix management mechanism.

Fri Jan 5 22:51:16 JST 2001
* libinet6/name6.c: nuke getnodeby{name,addr}, which was mentioned
only in draft-ietf-ipngwg-bsd-api-new-01.txt.

Fri Jan 5 13:24:21 JST 2001
* getaddrinfo.c (shared/netbsd/openbsd/freebsd4)
query DNS only once per an AF.

2001-01-05 JINMEI, Tatuya <>
* bsdi4/contrib/bind/src/lib/irs/gethostent.c: allowed gethostbyname
to accept abbreviated IPv4 text addresses (like 127.1).
(XXX: this change is against a bind8 policy, but just for backward

2001-01-02 JINMEI, Tatuya <>
* freebsd3/lib/libinet6/Makefile: do not link resolver files when
USE_LIBBIND6 is YES, so that enhanced libbind could be tested.
* freebsd3/*/ when USE_LIBBIND6 is YES, link libbind
(as well as libinet6).

Tue Jan 2 17:15:44 JST 2001
* sys/netinet6/in6{,_ifattach}.c: correct use of IFAREF/IFFREE on
non-netbsd operating systems. old code had memory leak possibility
on SIOCDIFADDR_IN6. reported by hitachi guys.

2001-01-01 JINMEI, Tatuya <>
* bsdi4/lib/libinet6:
* bsdi4/contrib/bind/src/lib:
massive improvements on DNS resolver including
- IPv6 transport of DNS resolver. An IPv6 textual address can now
be in the /etc/resolv.conf file as a DNS server.
- support of A6 and DNAME with bit string labels. They are still
very experimental, and thus disabled by default. "options a6"
and "options dname" in the /etc/resolv.conf file would enable A6
and DNAME, respectively.
- EDNS0 OPT RR support with UDP buffer size negotiation. which is
disabled by default, and would enabled by "options edns0" in the
/etc/resolv.conf file.
- clarification on the relationship between address family and irs
functions. For example, if you call getaddrinfo with AF_UNSPEC,
and irs.conf specifies to consider the local hosts file first,
then getaddrinfo would try to resolve an address in the
following order:
+ IPv6 addresses in the hosts file.
+ IPv4 addresses in the hosts file.
+ IPv6 addresses via DNS.
+ IPv4 addresses via DNS.
And, if one of the first two attempts succeeded, the remaining
two methods would be skipped. This change of the behavior would
be useful if you put both IPv6 and IPv4 addresses in the hosts
file, and do not want to see redundant DNS packets.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
