Tue May 4 14:39:00 GMT 2010
Version 1.4.03-2 of 'maradns' has been uploaded. This version is the
initial release of the maradns package for Cygwin.
The following was excerpted from the Introduction section of the MaraDNS
project website, http://www.maradns.org/ :
MaraDNS is a package that implements the Domain Name Service (DNS),
an essential internet service. MaraDNS has the following advantages:
* Secure. MaraDNS has a security history as good as or better than
any other DNS server. For example, MaraDNS has always randomized,
using a secure random number generator, the Query ID and source
port of DNS queries; and was never vulnerable to the "new" cache
* Supported. MaraDNS has a long history of being maintained and
updated. Actively developed since 2001, MaraDNS continues to be
fully supported: The most recent release was done on February 2,
2010. Deadwood, the code that will become part of MaraDNS 2.0,
is frequently updated.
* Easy to use. A basic recursive configuration needs only a single
three-line configuration file. A basic authoritative configuration
needs only a four-line configuration file and a one-line zone file.
MaraDNS is fully documented, with both easy-to-follow tutorials
and a complete and up-to-date reference manual.
* Small. MaraDNS is well suited for embedded applications and other
environments where the server must use the absolute minimum number
of resources possible. MaraDNS' binary is smaller than that of any
other currently maintained recursive DNS server.
* Open Source. MaraDNS is fully open-source, The license is a two-
clause BSD license that is almost identical to the FreeBSD license.
