Hi all

Today I released a major patch for the OpenDBX backend which contains several 
important improvements:

- Supports separate DBMS servers for reading and writing
- Fault tolerance if the server for updating domains is down
- Meaningful warnings and error messages at every time
- Fine tuning for a maximum of speed

Supporting different server for reading and updating domains is especially 
important if you don't have a cluster where each node is equal. Most of the 
time one server (the master) is used for updates and the changes are 
replicated to one or more slave server. The patch enables the OpenDBX backend 
to support this as well as being able to serve all domains by querying the 
slaves even if the master is down and updates can't be made.

Diff to pdns 2.9.20: http://www.linuxnetworks.de/pdnsodbx/index.html

Feel free to test it in your environment :-)
