I have been sick and pretty much laying in bed playing video games and working on MaraDNS the last three days.
Deadwood-2 is now a fully functional caching non-recursive DNS server. There's a lot of work still to be done, but we now have caching. Look at the code (and the TODO) in today's snapshot of MaraDNS.
In addition, Jean-Jacques Sarton has contributed a couple of bug fixes to some of the SQA tests.
The snapshot can be downloaded here.
