is the time to test!

Remaining work before 3.0 is making Debian and Red Hat packages, adding
init.d script and converting the documentation to man pages.

Changes compared to before 3.0:
	- Massive performance increases
	- Tested on over 2 million internet connections
	- Vastly improved anti-spoofing measures and detection
	- Large amounts of statistics (see http://adsl-xs4all.ds9a.nl/rrd)

Changes compared to 3.0-pre2:
	- Added full IPv6 listening support, including access filtering
	- Fix 'removing fd not on list' error
	- Make TCP clients not time out while PowerDNS is doing work
	- Kqueue and epoll now work in --fork SMP mode
	- Solaris 10 now compiles and works out of the box
	  (to compile on Solaris 8, use CXXFLAGS=-DSOLARIS)
	- id.server / version.bind support, useful for clusters
	- top-remotes command to gain insight in most active clients
