./net/adns, Asynchronous-capable DNS client library and utilities

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.5.1, Package name: adns-1.5.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

adns is a DNS resolver library and a collection of utilities that use the
library. The adns library has the following features:
* It is reasonably easy to use for simple programs which just want to
translate names to addresses, look up MX records, etc.
* It can be used in an asynchronous, non-blocking, manner. Many
queries can be handled simultaneously.
* Responses are decoded automatically into a natural representation
for a C program - there is no need to deal with DNS packet formats.
* Sanity checking (eg, name syntax checking, reverse/forward
correspondence, CNAME pointing to CNAME) is performed automatically.
* Time-to-live, CNAME and other similar information is returned in an
easy-to-use form, without getting in the way.
* There is no global state in the library; resolver state is an
opaque data structure which the client creates explicitly. A
program can have several instances of the resolver.
* Errors are reported to the application in a way that distinguishes
the various causes of failure properly.
* Understands conventional resolv.conf, but this can overridden by
environment variables.
* Flexibility. For example, the application can tell adns to: ignore
environment variables (for setuid programs), disable hostname
syntax sanity checks to return arbitrary data, override or ignore
resolv.conf in favour of supplied configuration, etc.
...and more!

Log message:
Updated net/adns to 1.5.1
adns (1.5.1) UPSTREAM; urgency=medium

  * Portability fix for systems where socklen_t is bigger than int.
  * Fix for malicious optimisation of memcpy in test suite, which
    causes failure with gcc-4.1.9 -O3.  See Debian bug #772718.
  * Fix TCP async connect handling.  The bug is hidden on Linux and on most
    systems where the nameserver is on localhost.  If it is not hidden,
    adns's TCP support is broken unless adns_if_noautosys is used.
  * Fix addr queries (including subqueries, ie including deferencing MX
    lookups etc.) not to crash when one of the address queries returns
    tempfail.  Also, do not return a spurious pointer to the application
    when one of the address queries returns a permanent error (although,
    the application almost certainly won't use this pointer because the
    associated count is zero).
  * adnsresfilter: Fix addrtextbuf buffer size.  This is not actually a
    problem in real compiled code but should be corrected.
  * Properly include harness.h in adnstest.c in regress/.  Suppresses
    a couple of compiler warnings (implicit declaration of Texit, etc.)

recursive revbump due to net/adns update 1.4 to 1.5.0
   2015-01-29 10:47:04 by Makoto Fujiwara | Files touched by this commit (8) | Package updated
Log message:
 - Add comments on patches from cvs log
 - update 1.4 to 1.5.0
Changes in adns 1.5.0, since adns 1.4, are:

 New features:

 * This release provides full IPv6 support.  Applications can request
   AAAA records (containing IPv6 addresses) as well as, or instead of,
   A records (containing IPv4 addresses).  adns 1.5 can speak to
   nameservers over IPv6.

 * adns_addr2text and adns_text2addr: Convenient C functions for
   converting between addresses and address literals.  These carry
   less baggage than getaddrinfo and getnameinfo.


 * We fix a crashing bug in adnslogres.  (Debian#392102.)

 * Previously, parsing of some adns_specific options in resolv.conf
   would go awry if multiple options were specified on the same line.
   (Fixed since 1.5.0~rc0.)

 * adns now knows to ignore more things in resolv.conf, rather than
   warn about them, and there's also an option to disable all of these
   warnings.  (Debian#411263.)  (Fixed since 1.5.0~rc0.)

 * Previously, some harmless but wrong owner names for checked ptr
   queries would be accepted; now they are rejected with `Domain
   invalid for particular DNS query type'.


 * There are some minor API/ABI changes and improvements, for future

 * There are also some build system, test suite and coding style

 * Licence is now GPLv3.


  adns 1.5 is fully forwards API- and ABI-compatible with 1.4.

  adns 1.5 is not backwards ABI-compatible, in the sense that
  applications built against adns 1.5 but run with adns 1.4 may
  experience `Function not implemented' errors, or `symbol lookup
  error' due to undefined symbols.  But applications built against 1.4
  will not experience data corruption due to ABI mismatches.

  adns_r_addr queries (general `address' queries where the application
  does not specify the kind of address) used to only return AF_INET
  (IPv4) addresses.  To avoid surprising existing applications,
  AF_INET6 (IPv6) addresses will be returned only if the application
  explicitly states its support for handling a mixture of address
  families in the results from adns_r_addr.  In a future version of
  adns this will become the default.

  adnshost and the other command-line utilities are fully forward- and
  backward-compatible, except that in adns 1.5, adnshost will return
  IPv6 as well as IPv4 information if simply asked for `addresses'.
  Calling programs which did not ask for a specific address type ought
  to cope with this.

  The API in 1.5.0 also fixes a technical nonconformance to the C
  specification.  On platforms where an `enum' type might be an
  integer type whose size is bits is not a power of two, there could
  be an incompatible ABI change between 1.4 and 1.5 - but we don't
  think there are many (if any) such platforms which are sufficiently
  POSIX-like for adns.   (Changed since 1.5.0~rc0.)

adns (1.4); urgency=low

  Improvements for multithreaded programs:
  * New documentation comment in adns.h explaining thread guarantees
    (or lack of them), replaces `single-threaded' note at the top.
  * Fix string conversion of adns_r_addr not to use a static buffer
    (function csp_addr) so as to make thread promise true.
  * Make an internal variable const-correct (expectdomain in pa_ptr).

adns (1.3); urgency=low

  Portability fixes:
  * Cast ptrdiff_t to int for %.*s length in adnsheloex and adnslogres,
    as is required.  (Report from Jim Meyering.)
  * In configure.in, quote macro name argument to define() to
    suppress spurious autoconf error.  (Report from Mihai Ibanescu.)
  * Use autoconf's values for {bin,lib,include}dir rather than inventing
    our own from @exec_prefix@, making configure --libdir work.
    (Patch from Mihai Ibanescu.)
  * Remove spurious `_' from {bin,lib,include}dir Makefile variables.
    (Report from Mihai Ibanescu.)
  * Do away with `mismatch' variable in parse.c:adns__findrr_anychk so that
    overzealous GCC cannot complain about members of eo_fls being
    uninitialised.  (Report from Jim Meyering.)

 -- Ian Jackson <ian@davenant.greenend.org.uk>  Tue,  6 Jun 2006 20:22:30 +0100

adns (1.2); urgency=medium

  New features:
  * Support for SRV RRs.
  * Support for unknown RR types (according to RFC3597) via adns_r_unknown.
  * Allow `;'-comments in resolv.conf (report from Colin Charles).
  * New adnsheloex client courtesy of Tony Finch.
  * New adns_init_logfn etc. for having logging use a callback function.

  * Fix error in prototype in definition of adns__parse_domain.
  * Add missing ENOTSOCK to hcommon.c.m4 (was already in hcommon.c!)

  Portability fixes prompted by Bernd Eckenfels, the Debian maintainer:
  * Correct type of various printf arguments: ptrdiff_t != int.
  * Do not print size of leaked blocks of memory (this causes
    a spurious regression test failure on some platforms).
  * Provide adns_if_none and adns_qf_none (which will help with compilers
    which complain about plain `0' being passed where an enum is wanted).
  * adnstest converts some errno values to EFOOBAR: all of the ones
    mentioned in adns.h, at least.  This makes the regression test
    more portable (fixes problem noticed by Bernd Eckenfels).
  * Add -Wno-pointer-sign if GCC has that option.

  Documentation improvements:
  * Add documentation comment by definition of adns_r_ptr_raw type enum.
  * Document in adns.h EINVAL from adns_init meaning bad configuration.
  * Include several new references to related programs to README.html.
  * Redacted the TODO list.
  * New LICENCE.WAIVERS file for GPL-incompatility workarounds.
  * Clarified GPL-vs-LGPL: a bit less hostile and a bit more mercenary.
  * Copyright notices updated.

  Packaging changes:
  * Update MINOR to 2 and DISTVERSION and ADNS_VERSION_STRING to 1.2.
  * Reran autoconf/autoheader (autoconf Debian 2.13-54).
  * Create $(bin_dir) and $(lib_dir) on `make install', and also
    make a libadns.so.1 -> libadns.so.1.<minor> link.  (Suggestions
    and patch from Nix of esperi.org.uk.)
  * Add .PHONY: install to Makefile, to help people with demented fs's.
  * Darwin listed in INSTALL.

  Minor test harness improvements:
  * Hgettimeofday calls Tensurerecordfile (was Tensureinput/outputfile).
  * Add bind(2) and listen(2) wrappers (for epithet, but harmless in adns).
