Currently, all is quiet in dnsmasq development. Since it's the start of 
summer in my part of the world, I'm hoping that things stay that way so 
that I can get out and enjoy the sunshine.

Therefore, even though the changeset from 2.41 is not extensive, I'm 
planning to push out a 2.42 release soonish, to get the small number of 
bugfixes and enhancements I do have into circulation. So I've made a 
2.42rc1 release, available at


Please try it out and report any problems or regressions here.

The changelog from 2.41 is appended below.



             Define _GNU_SOURCE to avoid problems with later glibc
             headers. Thanks to Jima for spotting the problem.

             Add --dhcp-alternate-port option. Thanks to Jan Psota for
             the suggestion.

             Fix typo in code which is only used on BSD, when Dbus and
             IPv6 support is enabled. Thanks to Roy Marples.

             Define _LARGEFILE_SOURCE which removes an arbitrary 2GB
             limit on logfiles. Thanks to Paul Chambers for spotting
             the problem.

             Fix RFC3046 agent-id echo code, broken for many
             releases. Thanks to Jeremy Laine for spotting the problem
             and providing a patch.

             kernels, removes "legacy support in use" messages. Thanks
