I have finally answered all of the MaraDNS support email I got in the last few days. Like I said before, it sometimes takes me up to a week to answer email. If you sent a support email before today and it isn't answered, please resend it.
There are a couple of bugs that people reported in support emails:
- Zone files sometimes act funny if the last character is not a newline. This is something where I will have to go through the RR parsing code for each record type and make sure they can end with either a newline/space or with a EOF.
- There is a reported memory leak. The reporter was even kind enough to tell me where the memory that causes the leak is allocated. I have already downloaded and installed valgrind. I will look in to this leak in the next day or two.
One thing I am very seriously considering doing is starting to sell commerical level support for MaraDNS. There are some things I want to finish up with MaraDNS first however: The BIND zone support, and the rewrite of the recursive resolver.
Another support email asked for help with making a distribution-specific package for MaraDNS. Quite frankly, this goes beyond the boundaries of support I offer for MaraDNS. I offer both a CentOS/RHEL distribution-specific package of MaraDNS, and a Windows 32 native binary (which is a partial port). Kai makes a Debian/Ubuntu package, Alex makes a FreeBSD port, and Daniel makes a Slackware package. If you run anything else, I can't really help you because I only run Win32, CentOS 3, and Ubuntu 6.06.
That said, I am willing to make a package for your distribution if you're willing to pay me to do it. :-) If MaraDNS doesn't compile on whatever modern *nix you're trying to run MaraDNS on, if you give me a remote account for the *nix in question, I will make the necessary changes so that MaraDNS will compile.
