> We are proud to release 3.1.3, compared to 3.1.2, this release again

> Thanks to some recent migrations, this release, is already powering over

> Many thanks are again due to Darren Gamble who together with his team has
> discovered many misconfigured domains that do work with some other name
> servers. DNS has long been tolerant of misconfigurations, PowerDNS intends
> to uphold that tradition. Almost all of the domains found by Darren now
> work as well in PowerDNS as in other name server implementations.
> * The MThread default stack size was too small, which led to problems,
> mostly on 64-bit platforms. This stack size is now configurable using
> the stack-size setting should our estimate be off. Discovered by
> Darren Gamble, Sten Spans and a number of others. Fixed in commit 868.
> * Plug a small memory leak discovered by Kai and Darren Gamble, fixed in
> commit 870.
> * Switch from the excellent nedmalloc to dlmalloc, based on advice by
> the nedmalloc author. Nedmalloc is optimised for multithreaded
> operation, whereas the PowerDNS recursor is single threaded. The
> version of nedmalloc shipped contained a number of possible bugs,
> which are probably resolved by moving to dlmalloc. Some reported
> crashes on hitting 2G of allocated memory on 64 bit systems might be
> solved by this switch, which should also increase performance. See
> commit 873 for details.
> * The cache is now explicitly aware of the difference between
> authoritative and unauthoritative data, allowing it to deal with some
> domains that have different data in the parent zone than in the
> authoritative zone. Patch in commit 867.
> * No longer try to parse DNS updates as if they were queries. Discovered
> and fixed by Jan Gyselinck, fix in commit 871.
> * Rebalance logging priorities for less log cluttering and add IP
> address to a remote server error message. Noticed and fixed by Jan
> Gyselinck (commit 877).
> * Add logging-facility setting, allowing syslog to send PowerDNS logging
> to a separate file. Added in commit 871.
