Last week's 2.83 release has proved to have a regression. The symptoms
are random log messages reporting "failure to send packet" and the DNS
query associated with this is lost. Retries of the query do not fail, so
the operational effect of this is minimal. To trigger the bug, dnsmasq
has to be under fairly heavy load, and be configured for a mixture or
IPv4 and IPv6 upstream DNS servers or, possibly, be using
--bind-interfaces. To fix this, I've released 2.84, which has the fix
for the regression, and a couple of housekeeping changes.

Get it here:


The released security backport to version 2.80 has also been updated to
fix the regresssion.
