    Release Notes: This release adds some minor configuration options and includes some maintenance for non-Linux platforms. There are two significant bugfixes: a fix to the RFC3046 DHCP agent-id code, and a fix for a bug that caused dnsmasq to spin, eating CPU, in very rare circumstances. (The bug has been present since 2.38, and there has been exactly one report of this problem.) Users of releases 2.38 and later should, nevertheless, upgrade.

      Release Notes: This release adds support for Solaris 9 and Solaris 10. The GPL v3 has been added as a license option, whilse retaining the GPL v2. There are number of new minor interest features and some bugfixes, including broken --alias support and support for DNS queries of type ANY.

        Release Notes: This release includes fixes for minor problems that have arisen since 2.39. Additional functionality includes a method to close and reopen log files, the ability to use custom paths based on IP address in the TFTP sever, and an easy way to differentiate between known and unknown hosts in the DHCP configuration system.

          Release Notes: This release adds some features to the log subsystem: it is now possible to log directly to a file, and to log asynchronously to syslog. More detailed logging of DHCP transactions is available. DHCP options can now be specified by name instead of by number. DHCP configuration can now use information from a DHCP relay agent. There are a few minor bugfixes (notably failure of TFTP with --listen-address). Some translations have been updated.

            Release Notes: This release fixes a problem introduced in 2.37 which could cause dnsmasq to hang using 100% of the CPU. This only occured when at least one infinite-time DHCP lease existed, and it could take hours or days for the problem to show, depending on the load. All 2.37 users should upgrade. This release also fixes a long-standing bug which caused dnsmasq to continually repeat a query when it received a SERVFAIL code from an upstream server. This only happened when the --strict-order configuration flag was used. All installations using --strict-order should upgrade.

              Release Notes: This release fixes a regression in version 2.36 which made the --bogus-nxdomain flag unreliable and sometimes stopped dnsmasq from caching DNS queries effectively. This release adds some performance tuning and a LIMITS section in the man page which gives guidance on performance under heavy load. It also improves DHCP over Firewire and DHCP over InfinBand. The method for handling vendor-class encapsulated DHCP options has been simplified.

                Release Notes: This release adds a TFTP server, making dnsmasq a self-contained solution for netboot. There are also the usual selections of configuration enhancements and minor bugfixes,

                  Release Notes: The prime reason for this release is to add a workaround for a bug in the OpenBSD-4.0 kernel. OpenBSD-4.0 is due for release very soon and no version of dnsmasq prior to 2.35 will do DHCP on OpenBSD-4.0. This release also includes performance improvements when reading very large /etc/hosts files.

                    Release Notes: The main changes in this release are enhancements to the lease-change script function. The script is now run as root even if dnsmasq drops root privileges, and more information about the hostname and DHCP vendorclass and userclass information is provided to it. A new configuration flag has been added to cause the DNS cache to be automatically cleared when changing upstream nameservers. There are a few bugfixes, all for minor and obscure problems.

                      Release Notes: This release adds the ability to store the DHCP lease database in an external database such as a relational database or NV storage. Dnsmasq will call a script to access the database as required. A sample implementation using the "nvram" command found in some Linux router distributions was included in the contrb section. The only significant bugfix repairs problems encountered when using the DHCP-relay function on some Cisco routers.
