rc1 is now available at:
The changelog from 2.42 looks like this.
Updated Polish translation. Thanks to Jan Psota.
Flag errors when configuration options are repeated
Further tweaks for GNU/kFreeBSD
Add --no-wrap to msgmerge call - provides nicer .po file
Honour lease-time spec in dhcp-host lines even for
BOOTP. The user is assumed to known what they are doing in
this case. (Hosts without the time spec still get infinite
leases for BOOTP, over-riding the default in the
dhcp-range.) Thanks to Peter Katzmann for uncovering this.
Fix problem matching relay-agent ids. Thanks to Michael
Rack for the bug report.
Add --naptr-record option. Suggestion from Johan
Implement RFC 5107 server-id-override DHCP relay agent
Apply patches from Stefan Kruger for compilation on
Solaris 10 under Sun studio.
Yet more tweaking of Linux capability code, to suppress
pointless wingeing from kernel 2.6.25 and above.
Improve error checking during startup. Previously, some
errors which occurred during startup would be worked
around, with dnsmasq still starting up. Some were logged,
some silent. Now, they all cause a fatal error and dnsmasq
terminates with a non-zero exit code. The errors are those
associated with changing uid and gid, setting process
capabilities and writing the pidfile. Thanks to Uwe
Gansert and the Suse security team for pointing out
this improvement, and Bill Reimers for good implementation
I'll be away for a couple of weeks, and plan to make a 2.43 release when
I return, so please, anyone who can, try out the 2.43rc1 tarball. You
know it makes sense.
