Changes since 9.5.1b1:
--- 9.5.1b2 released ---
2443. [bug] win32: UDP connect() would not generate an event,
and so connected UDP sockets would never clean up.
Fix this by doing an immediate WSAConnect() rather
than an io completion port type for UDP.
2442. [bug] A lock could be destroyed twice. [RT# 18626]
2441. [bug] isc_radix_insert() could copy radix tree nodes
incompletely. [RT #18573]
2440. [bug] named-checkconf used an incorrect test to determine
if an ACL was set to none.
2439. [bug] Potential NULL dereference in dns_acl_isanyornone().
2438. [bug] Timeouts could be logged incorrectly under win32.
2437. [bug] Sockets could be closed too early, leading to
inconsistent states in the socket module. [RT #18298]
2436. [security] win32: UDP client handler can be shutdown. [RT #18576]
2435. [bug] Fixed an ACL memory leak affecting win32.
2434. [bug] Fixed a minor error-reporting bug in
2433. [tuning] Set initial timeout to 800ms.
2432. [bug] More Windows socket handling improvements. Stop
using I/O events and use IO Completion Ports
throughout. Rewrite the receive path logic to make
it easier to support multiple simultaneous
requestrs in the future. Add stricter consistency
checking as a compile-time option (define
ISC_SOCKET_CONSISTENCY_CHECKS; defaults to off).
2431. [bug] Acl processing could leak memory. [RT #18323]
2430. [bug] win32: isc_interval_set() could round down to
zero if the input was less than NS_INTERVAL
nanoseconds. Round up instead. [RT #18549]
2429. [doc] nsupdate should be in section 1 of the man pages.
2428. [bug] dns_iptable_merge() mishandled merges of negative
tables. [RT #18409]
2426. [bug] libbind: inet_net_pton() can sometimes return the
wrong value if excessively large netmasks are
supplied. [RT #18512]
2425. [bug] named didn't detect unavailable query source addresses
at load time. [RT #18536]
2424. [port] configure now probes for a working epoll
implementation. Allow the use of kqueue,
epoll and /dev/poll to be selected at compile
time. [RT #18277]
2422. [bug] Handle the special return value of a empty node as
if it was a NXRRSET in the validator. [RT #18447]
2421. [func] Add new command line option '-S' for named to specify
the max number of sockets. [RT #18493]
Use caution: this option may not work for some
operating systems without rebuilding named.
2420. [bug] Windows socket handling cleanup. Let the io
completion event send out cancelled read/write
done events, which keeps us from writing to memeory
we no longer have ownership of. Add debugging
socket_log() function. Rework TCP socket handling
to not leak sockets.
2419. [cleanup] Document that isc_socket_create() and isc_socket_open()
should not be used for isc_sockettype_fdwatch sockets.
2418. [bug] AXFR request on a DLZ could trigger a REQUIRE failure
2417. [bug] Connecting UDP sockets for outgoing queries could
unexpectedly fail with an 'address already in use'
error. [RT #18411]
2416. [func] Log file descriptors that cause exceeding the
internal maximum. [RT #18460]
2415. [bug] 'rndc dumpdb' could trigger various assertion failures
in rbtdb.c. [RT #18455]
2414. [bug] A masterdump context held the database lock too long,
causing various troubles such as dead lock and
recursive lock acquisition. [RT #18311, #18456]
2413. [bug] Fixed an unreachable code path in socket.c. [RT #18442]
2412. [bug] win32: address a resourse leak. [RT #18374]
2411. [bug] Allow using a larger number of sockets than FD_SETSIZE
for select(). To enable this, set ISC_SOCKET_MAXSOCKETS
at compilation time. [RT #18433]
2410. [bug] Correctly delete m_versionInfo. [RT #18432]
2409. [bug] Only log that we disabled EDNS processing if we were
subsequently successful. [RT #18029]
2408. [bug] A duplicate TCP dispatch event could be sent, which
could then trigger an assertion failure in
resquery_response(). [RT #18275]
2407. [port] hpux: test for sys/dyntune.h. [RT #18421]
xxxx. [bug] Connecting UDP sockets for outgoing queries could
unexpectedly fail with an 'address already in use'
2405. [cleanup] The default value for dnssec-validation was changed to
"yes" in 9.5.0-P1 and all subsequent releases; this
was inadvertently omitted from CHANGES at the time.
2404. [port] hpux: files unlimited support.
2403. [bug] TSIG context leak. [RT #18341]
2402. [port] Support Solaris 2.11 and over. [RT #18362]
2401. [bug] Expect to get E[MN]FILE errno internal_accept()
(from accept() or fcntl() system calls). [RT #18358]
2400. [bug] Log if kqueue()/epoll_create()/open(/dev/poll) fails.
2398. [bug] Improve file descriptor management. New,
temporary, named.conf option reserved-sockets,
default 512. [RT #18344]
2397. [bug] gssapi_functions bad declaration. [RT #18355]
2396. [bug] Don't set SO_REUSEADDR for randomized ports.
2395. [port] Avoid warning and no effect from "files unlimited"
on Linux when running as root. [RT #18335]
2394. [bug] Default configuration options set the limit for
open files to 'unlimited' as described in the
documentation. [RT #18331]
2393. [bug] nested acls containing keys could trigger an
assertion in acl.c. [RT #18166]
2392. [bug] remove 'grep -q' from acl test script, some platforms
don't support it. [RT #18253]
2391. [port] hpux: cover additional recvmsg() error codes.
2390. [bug] dispatch.c could make a false warning on 'odd socket'.
2389. [bug] Move the "working directory writable" check to after
the ns_os_changeuser() call. [RT #18326]
2388. [bug] Avoid using tables for layout purposes in
statistics XSL [RT #18159].
2386. [func] Add warning about too small 'open files' limit.
