    Release Notes: This release fixes problems in the 2.21 release. It builds unpatched on Linux systems with /usr/include/linux from glibc 2.2, and three or four regressions from 2.20 provoked by particular configurations have been fixed. The only new feature is support for encapsulated vendor-specific DHCP options.

      Release Notes: This release adds some extra configuration options both to the DNS server and the DHCP server. It also includes a couple of bug fixes and a security enhancement which improves resistance to DNS cache-poisoning attacks. Upgrades to existing installations are low priority.

        Release Notes: This release fixes some fairly obscure bugs. It also fixes compilation on Mac OS X. There are a few additional, fairly minority-interest, features and configuration options, notably support for the SRV DNS record type.

          Release Notes: This release fixes an error at startup on certain IPv6-enabled Linux kernels. It also fixes bad behaviour with zero-length client-ID DHCP options, and tightens up checking of DHCP option lengths in general. There is no need to upgrade from 2.18 unless you encounter either of these problems, both of which are rare.

            Release Notes: This release fixes a couple of minor bugs. One is associated with the use of IPv6 on Linux, and the other with multiple ranges of addresses for DHCP allocation on a single subnet. There's no reason to upgrade unless you've hit either of these bugs.

              Release Notes: This release fixes a crash bug in 2.16, so it's worth upgrading from that version (though the crash only happened in fairly unusual circumstances). It also fixes widespread build problems with the previous version, which stemmed from a clash between a symbol in dnsmasq and one in the C library. There are some new DHCP configuration options. There is a new mailing list.

                Release Notes: This release has some minor new features; RFC 3397 support, better CNAME caching, and a few more flexible options. It fixes an interaction with Linux kernels after 2.4.19 or so, where receiving a UDP packet with a bad checksum can cause dnsmasq to hang. It also fixes a bad interaction with the Polipo Web cache. Compilation under OpenBSD works again, and the NetBSD configuration has been updated.

                  Release Notes: This release fixes confusion between NODATA and NXDOMAIN replies in the DNS server. It addresses a situation where dnsmasq could return NXDOMAIN for a query of type AAAA even though queries for the same domain for A or MX records would succeed. This bug is triggered by a change in behaviour between Windows XP SP1 and SP2, and has also been seen with certain mailer configurations. Note that the bug only occured for domains that were in dnsmasq's local configuration (from /etc/hosts or DHCP). Domains that were merely cached from upstream name servers never triggered the problem.

                    Release Notes: This release comprises a collection of tweaks to the DHCP server. They improve RFC-compliance and fix a bug in interoperation with DHCP relay agents. Support for RFC-951 BOOTP and RFC-3011 subnet selectors was added. Compilation under NetBSD and Mac OS X was fixed.
