Dnsmasq-2.61 is available now from the following URLS.
Re-write interface discovery code on *BSD to use
getifaddrs. This is more portable, more straightforward,
and allows us to find the prefix length for IPv6
Add ra-names, ra-stateless and slaac keywords for DHCPv6.
Dnsmasq can now synthesise AAAA records for dual-stack
hosts which get IPv6 addresses via SLAAC. It is also now
possible to use SLAAC and stateless DHCPv6, and to
tell clients to use SLAAC addresses as well as DHCP ones.
Thanks to Dave Taht for help with this.
Add --dhcp-duid to allow DUID-EN uids to be used.
Explicity send DHCPv6 replies to the correct port, instead
of relying on clients to send requests with the correct
source address, since at least one client in the wild gets
this wrong. Thanks to Conrda Kostecki for help tracking
Send a preference value of 255 in DHCPv6 replies when
--dhcp-authoritative is in effect. This tells clients not
to wait around for other DHCP servers.
Better logging of DHCPv6 options.
Add --host-record. Thanks to Rob Zwissler for the
Invoke the DHCP script with action "tftp" when a TFTP file
transfer completes. The size of the file, address to which
it was sent and complete pathname are supplied. Note that
version 2.60 introduced some script incompatibilties
associated with DHCPv6, and this is a further change. To
be safe, scripts should ignore unknown actions, and if
not IPv6-aware, should exit if the environment
variable DNSMASQ_IAID is set. The use-case for this is
to track netboot/install. Suggestion from Shantanu
Update contrib/port-forward/dnsmasq-portforward to reflect
Set the environment variable DNSMASQ_LOG_DHCP when running
the script id --log-dhcp is in effect, so that script can
taylor their logging verbosity. Suggestion from Malte
Arrange that addresses specified with --listen-address
work even if there is no interface carrying the
address. This is chiefly useful for IPv4 loopback
addresses, where any address in 127.0.0.0/8 is a valid
loopback address, but normally only 127.0.0.1 appears on
the lo interface. Thanks to Mathieu Trudel-Lapierre for
the idea and initial patch.
Fix crash, introduced in 2.60, when a DHCPINFORM is
received from a network which has no valid dhcp-range.
Thanks to Stephane Glondu for the bug report.
Add a new DHCP lease time keyword, "deprecated" for
--dhcp-range. This is only valid for IPv6, and sets the
preffered lease time for both DHCP and RA to zero. The
effect is that clients can continue to use the address
for existing connections, but new connections will use
other addresses, if they exist. This makes hitless
renumbering at least possible.
Fix bug in address6_available() which caused DHCPv6 lease
aquisition to fail if more than one dhcp-range in use.
Provide RDNSS and DNSSL data in router advertisements,
using the settings provided for DHCP options
option6:domain-search and option6:dns-server.
Tweak logo/favicon.ico to add some transparency. Thanks to
SamLT for work on this.
Don't cache data from non-recursive nameservers, since it
may erroneously look like a valid CNAME to a non-exitant
name. Thanks to Ben Winslow for finding this.
Call SO_BINDTODEVICE on the DHCP socket(s) when doing DHCP
on exactly one interface and --bind-interfaces is set. This
makes the OpenStack use-case of one dnsmasq per virtual
interface work. This is only available on Linux; it's not
supported on other platforms. Thanks to Vishvananda Ishaya
and the OpenStack team for the suggestion.
Updated French translation. Thanks to Gildas Le Nadan.
Give correct from-cache answers to explict CNAME queries.
Thanks to Rob Zwissler for spotting this.
Add --tftp-lowercase option. Thanks to Oliver Rath for the
Ensure that the DBus DhcpLeaseUpdated events are generated
when a lease goes through INIT_REBOOT state, even if the
dhcp-script is not in use. thanks to Antoaneta-Ecaterina
Ene for the patch.
Fix failure of TFTP over IPv4 on OpenBSD platform. Thanks
to Brad Smith for spotting this.
