Hey there,

I am currently working on new web based GUI for powerdns/gmysql-backend. 
I thought it might be a good idea to announce it to the pdns mailinglist 
as a good start. You can find some information and screenshots (rather 
old ones, but at least something for now) if you follow the link posted 
at the end of this mail - I will upload the first beta release soon (and 
announce it on this list)!

I was just wondering what the community thinks about another/a new web 
GUI - because when I did a little research quite a while ago I couldn't 
find any suitable/good/up-to-date project that fitted my needs. We are 
working on a setup with a pdns as a hidden-master and multiple public 
BIND slaves. Since this server is never getting any direct requests 
there are only master zones (no natives, no slaves) and this is 
reflected in the current abilities of ZoneAdmin. Besides this minor 
drawback it already supports zone templates, comments (per zone and per 
record), temporarily enabling/disabling of zones, a history to track 
changes to records/zones, apache authentication schemes (e.g. configure 
apache to use ldap or mysql authentication and ZoneAdmin will use these 
credentials for the history feature etc.)

It requires Apache, PHP, Smarty Template Engine, MySQL (relies on 
InnoDB). It has only been tested so far on Debian Etch systems witch 
Apache 2, PHP 5 and MySQL 5 but should also work on Apache 1.3 and/or PHP 4.

I'm looking forward to your feedback!

Mit freundlichen GrÌßen / with kind regards
