I put a new snapshot online here:
Compared to the previous snapshot:
- Full outgoing IPv6 support! Disabled by default. IPv6 addresses
are full citizens, meaning they get queries based on their
average response times. To enable, set 'query-local-address6=::0'.
- This in turn means that PowerDNS now does speed accounting more or
less on per IP address basis (exactly, per nameserver per IP
- As IPv6 tends to be somewhat slower than IPv4 (because of the
tunnels), you can uncomment some lines in syncres.cc mentioning
'IPv6 fanatics' to give IPv6 an unfair speed advantage.
- authoritative serving now actually works in many more cases
(previous version mostly worked)
- serve up the RFC 1918 zones by default.
- Zone refreshing from the . servers was broken, which could lead to
problems if all root-servers change IP addresses.
- make 'authoritative connection failures' count more heavily in the
- ANY queries are now supported as by other nameservers, which means
we now cache these answers, and let parts expire. This is per-rfc,
and saves lots of packets
- Negative caching was broken for 5 minutes after a
negative entry expired.
Let me know how it works for you!
