I've just released dnsmasq-2.71. This is a pure bugfix release which
addresses some DNSSEC problems, and a nasty failure which occurs when
dnsmasq is started with the DNS cache size set to zero.

If you're running 2.69 or 2.70, you should upgrade.




version 2.71
            Subtle change to error handling to help DNSSEC validation
            when servers fail to provide NODATA answers for
            non-existent DS records.

            Tweak code which removes DNSSEC records from answers when
            not required. Fixes broken answers when additional section
            has real records in it. Thanks to Marco Davids for the bug

            Fix DNSSEC validation of ANY queries. Thanks to Marco Davids
            for spotting that too.

            Fix total DNS failure and 100% CPU use if cachesize set
            to zero, regression introduced in 2.69. Thanks to James
            Hunt and the Ubuntu crowd for assistance in fixing this.
