Dnsmasq 2.67rc1 is now available at:
Please test is you can, and translate if can
Fix crash if upstream server returns SERVFAIL when
--conntrack in use. Thanks to Giacomo Tazzari for finding
this and supplying the patch.
Repair regression in 2.64. That release stopped sending
lease-time information in the reply to DHCPINFORM
requests, on the correct grounds that it was a standards
violation. However, this broke the dnsmasq-specific
dhcp_lease_time utility. Now, DHCPINFORM returns
lease-time only if it's specifically requested
(maintaining standards) and the dhcp_lease_time utility
has been taught to ask for it (restoring functionality).
Fix --dhcp-match, --dhcp-vendorclass and --dhcp-userclass
to work with BOOTP and well as DHCP. Thanks to Peter
Korsgaard for spotting the problem.
Add --synth-domain. Thanks to Vishvananda Ishaya for
Fix failure to compile ipset.c if old kernel headers are
in use. Thanks to Eugene Rudoy for pointing this out.
Handle IPv4 interface-address labels in Linux. These are
often used to emulate the old IP-alias addresses. Before,
using --interface=eth0 would service all the addresses of
eth0, including ones configured as aliases, which appear
in ifconfig as eth0:0. Now, only addresses with the label
eth0 are active. This is not backwards compatible: if you
want to continue to bind the aliases too, you need to add
eg. --interface=eth0:0 to the config.
Fix "failed to set SO_BINDTODEVICE on DHCP socket: Socket
operation on non-socket" error on startup with
configurations which have exactly one --interface option
and do RA but _not_ DHCPv6. Thanks to Trever Adams for the
Generalise --interface-name to cope with IPv6 addresses
and multiple addresses per interface per address family.
Fix option parsing for --dhcp-host, which was generating a
spurious error when all seven possible items were
included. Thanks to Zhiqiang Wang for the bug report.
Remove restriction on prefix-length in --auth-zone. Thanks
to Toke Hoiland-Jorgensen for suggesting this.
Log when the maximum number of concurrent DNS queries is
reached. Thanks to Marcelo Salhab Brogliato for the patch.
If wildcards are used in --interface, don't assume that
there will only ever be one available interface for DHCP
just because there is one at start-up. More may appear, so
we can't use SO_BINDTODEVICE. Thanks to Natrio for the bug
Increase timeout/number of retries in TFTP to accomodate
AudioCodes Voice Gateways doing streaming writes to flash.
Thanks to Damian Kaczkowski for spotting the problem.
Fix crash with empty DHCP string options when adding zero
terminator. Thanks to Patrick McLean for the bug report.
Allow hostnames to start with a number, as allowed in
RFC-1123. Thanks to Kyle Mestery for the patch.
Fixes to DHCP FQDN option handling: don't terminate FQDN
if domain not known and allow a FQDN option with blank
name to request that a FQDN option is returned in the
reply. Thanks to Roy Marples for the patch.
Make --clear-on-reload apply to setting upstream servers
via DBus too.
When the address which triggered the construction of an
advertised IPv6 prefix disappears, continue to advertise
the prefix for up to 2 hours, with the preferred lifetime
set to zero. This satisfies RFC 6204 4.3 L-13 and makes
things work better if a prefix disappears without being
deprecated first. Thanks to Uwe Schindler for persuasively
arguing for this.
Fix MAC address enumeration on *BSD. Thanks to Brad Smith
for the bug report.
Support RFC-4242 information-refresh-time options in the
reply to DHCPv6 information-request. The lease time of the
smallest valid dhcp-range is sent. Thanks to Uwe Schindler
for suggesting this.
Add --force-fast-ra option. Another thanks to Uwe
Make --listen-address higher priority than --except-
interface in all circumstances. Thanks to Thomas Hood for
Provide independent control over which interfaces get TFTP
service. If enable-tftp is given a list of interfaces, then
TFTP is provided on those. Without the list, the previous
behaviour provide TFTP to the same interfaces we provide
DHCP to) is retained. Thanks to Lonnie Abelbeck for the
Add --dhcp-relay config option. Many thanks to vtsl.net
for sponsoring this development.
Fix crash with empty tag: in --dhcp-range. Thanks to
Kaspar Schleiser for the bug report.
Add "baseline" and "bloatcheck" makefile targets, for
revealing size changes during development. Thanks to
Vladislav Grishenko for the patch.
Cope with DHCPv6 clients which send REQUESTs without
address options - treat them as SOLICIT with rapid commit.
Support identification of clients by MAC address in
DHCPv6. When using a relay, the relay must support RFC
6939 for this to work. It always works for directly
connected clients. Thanks to Vladislav Grishenko
for prompting this feature.
Remove the rule for constructed DHCP ranges that the local
address must be either the first or last address in the
range. This was originally to avoid SLAAC addresses, but
we now explicitly autoconfig and privacy addresses
