 422.	[func]		get rid of isc_random_t, and make isc_random_get()
			and isc_random_jitter() use rand() internally

75 76 77 78
 402.	[bug]		Treat undefined acls as errors, rather than
			warning and then later throwing an assertion.
			[RT #252]

79 80
 401.	[func]		Added simple database API.

81 82 83
 400.	[bug]		SIG(0) signing and verifying was done incorrectly.

			containing a syntax error, it could catch an
			assertion failure trying to perform zone
			maintenance on, or sending notifies from,
			tentatively created zones whose	views were
			never fully configured and lacked an address 
			database and request manager.

92 93 94
 398.	[bug]		"dig" sometimes caught an assertion failure when
			using TSIG, depending on the key length.

95 96
 397.	[func]		Added utility functions dns_view_gettsig() and
			dns_view_getpeertsig().
97

 393.	[func]		Initial answer while loading (awl) support.
			Entry points: dns_master_loadfileinc(),
			dns_master_loadstreaminc(), dns_master_loadbufferinc().
			Note: calls to dns_master_load*inc() should be rate
			be rate limited so as to not use up all file
			descriptors.

113 114 115 116 117
 392.	[func]		Add ISC_R_FAMILYNOSUPPORT.  Returned when OS does

 390.	[func]		The function dns_zone_setdbtype() now takes
			an argc/argv style vector of words and sets 
			both the zone database type and its arguments,
			making the functions dns_zone_adddbarg()
			and dns_zone_cleardbargs() unnecessary.

 377.	[bug]		When additional data lookups were refused due to 
160 161 162
			"allow-query", the databases were still being
			attached causing reference leaks.

163 164 165
 376.	[bug]		The server should always use good entropy when
			performing cryptographic functions needing entropy.

166 167 168 169 170 171
 375.	[bug]		Per-zone "allow-query" did not properly override the
			view/global one for CNAME targets and additional

 374.	[bug]		SOA in authoritative negative responses had wrong TTL.

172 173
 373.	[func]		nslookup is now installed by "make install".

			missing an options statement. [RT #209]

205 206 207 208 209 210 211 212 213 214
 361.	[func]		When the RBT find or chain functions set the name and
			origin for a node that stores the root label
			the name is now set to an empty name, instead of ".",
			to simplify later use of the name and origin by
			dns_name_concatenate(), dns_name_totext() or
			dns_name_format().

 360.	[func]		dns_name_totext() and dns_name_format() now allow
			an empty name to be passed, which is formatted as "@".

			* Add name/rr counting/limiting
			* Fix SIGINT handling
			* Shorten timeouts to match v8's behavior
263 264

 344.	[bug]		When shutting down, lwresd sometimes tried
265
			to shut down its client tasks twice,
266 267
			triggering an assertion.

268 269 270 271 272 273 274 275 276
 343.	[bug]		Although zone maintenance SOA queries and
			notify requests were signed with TSIG keys
			when configured for the server in case,
			the TSIG was not verified on the response.

 342.	[bug]		The wrong name was being passed to
			dns_name_dup() when generating a TSIG
			key using TKEY.

277
 341.	[func]		Support 'key' clause in named.conf zone masters
278 279
			statement:

280

 339.	[bug]		DNSSEC validation of the response to an ANY
			query at a name with a CNAME RR in a secure
			zone triggered an assertion failure.

292 293
 338.	[bug]		lwresd logged to syslog as named, not lwresd.

294 295 296
 337.	[bug]		"dig" did not recognize "nsap-ptr" as an RR type
			on the command line.

297 298 299 300
 336.	[bug]		"dig -f" used 64 k of memory for each line in
			the file.  It now uses much less, though still
			proportionally to the file size.

301 302 303
 335.	[bug]		named would occasionally attempt recursion when
			it was disallowed or undesired.

304 305
 334.	[func]		Added hmac-md5 to libisc.

306
 333.	[bug]		The resolver incorrectly accepted referrals to
307 308
			domains that were not parents of the query name,
			causing assertion failures.
309

310 311
 332.	[func]		New function dns_name_reset().

312 313
 331.	[bug]		Only log "recursion denied" if RD is set. (RT #178)

314 315 316
 330.	[bug]		Many debugging messages were partially formatted
			even when debugging was turned off, causing a
			significant decrease in query performance.
317

318 319 320 321
 329.	[func]		omapi_auth_register() now takes a size_t argument for
			the length of a key's secret data.  Previously
			OMAPI only stored secrets up to the first NUL byte.

322 323
 328.	[func]		Added isc_base64_decodestring().

324 325 326
 327.	[bug]		rndc.conf parser wasn't correctly recognising an IP
			address where a host specification was required.

327 328
 326.	[func]		'keys' in an 'inet' control statement is now
			required and must have at least one item in it.
329 330
			A "not supported" warning is now issued if a 'unix'
			control channel is defined.
331

332 333

335 336 337 338
 324.	[func]		In the resolver, turn EDNS0 off if there is no
			response after a number of retransmissions.
			This is to allow queries some chance of succeeding
			even if all the authoritative servers of a zone
339
			silently discard EDNS0 requests instead of
340 341
			sending an error response like they ought to.

342
 323.	[bug]		dns_rbt_findname() did not ignore empty rbt nodes.
343
			Because of this, servers authoritative for a parent
344 345 346 347
			and grandchild zone but not authoritative for the
			intervening child zone did not correctly issue
			referrals to the servers of the child zone.

353 354 355 356 357
 321.	[bug]		When synthesizing a CNAME RR for a DNAME
			response, query_addcname() failed to intitialize
			the type and class of the CNAME dns_rdata_t,
			causing random failures.

358 359 360 361 362
 320.	[func]		Multiple rndc changes: parses an rndc.conf file,
			uses authentication to talk to named, command
			line syntax changed.  This will all be described
			in the ARM.

363 364 365
 319.	[func]		The named.conf "controls" statement is now used
			to configure the OMAPI command channel.

366 367 368
 318.	[func]		dns_c_ndcctx_destroy() could never return anything
			except ISC_R_SUCCESS; made it have void return instead.

369 370 371 372
 317.	[func]		Use callbacks from libomapi to determine if a
			new connection is valid, and if a key requested
			to be used with that connection is valid.

 314.	[func]		The named.conf controls statement can now have
379
			more than one key specified for the inet clause.
380

381
 313.	[bug]		When parsing resolv.conf, don't terminate on an
382
			error.	Instead, parse as much as possible, but
383 384
			still return an error if one was found.

385 386 387 388 389
 312.	[bug]		Increase the number of allowed elements in the
			resolv.conf search path from 6 to 8.  If there
			are more than this, ignore the remainder rather
			than returning a failure in lwres_conf_parse.

390 391 392
 311.	[bug]		lwres_conf_parse failed when the first line of
			resolv.conf was empty or a comment.

393 394 395 396 397 398 399 400 401 402 403 404 405
 310.	[func]		Changes to named.conf "controls" statement (inet
			subtype only)

			  - support "keys" clause

				controls {
				   inet * port 1024
					allow { any; } keys { "foo"; }
				}

			  - allow "port xxx" to be left out of statement,
			    in which case it defaults to omapi's default port
			    of 953.
406

407 408 409 410 411 412
 309.	[bug]		When sending a referral, the server did not look
			for name server addresses as glue in the zone
			holding the NS RRset in the case where this zone
			was not the same as the one where it looked for
			name server addresses as authoritative data.

413 414 415
 308.	[bug]		Treat a SOA record not at top of zone as an error
			when loading a zone. (RT #154)

416 417 418 419 420 421
 307.	[bug]		When canceling a query, the resolver didn't check for
			isc_socket_sendto() calls that did not yet have their
			completion events posted, so it could (rarely) end up
			destroying the query context and then want to use
			it again when the send event posted, triggering an
			assertion as it tried to cancel an already-canceled
422
			query.	(RT #77)

445

446 447 448 449 450 451
 300.	[bug]		Using both <isc/net.h> and <lwres/net.h> didn't work
			on platforms lacking IPv6 because each included their
			own ipv6 header file for the missing definitions.  Now
			each library's ipv6.h defines the wrapper symbol of
			the other (ISC_IPV6_H and LWRES_IPV6_H).

452 453 454
 299.	[cleanup]	Get the user and group information before changing the
			root directory, so the administrator does not need to
			keep a copy of the user and group databases in the
455
			chroot'ed environment.	Suggested by Hakan Olsson.

			failed unless configure had been run in the source
			directory, too.

469 470 471 472 473 474 475 476
 295.	[bug]		When invoked with type==CNAME and a message
			not constructed by dns_message_parse(),
			dns_message_findname() failed to find anything
			due to checking for attribute bits that are set
			only in dns_message_parse().   This caused an
			infinite loop when constructing the response to
			an ANY query at a CNAME in a secure zone.
