Deadwood 2.5.01 released

I have just released Deadwood 2.5.01. This is a testing release; while bugs will be fixed, the emphasis is more on adding features.

This release adds the filter_rfc1918 parameter, which is enabled by default. This filters out all DNS replies with IP addresses that are non-global (RFC1918) addresses; in other words, 10.x.x.x, 192.168.x.x, and 172.{16-31}.x.x addresses. This is done for security purposes.

In addition, this release can be compiled with the tiny TCC compiler, and there is a Windows .7z file which includes the Deadwood source and the TCC compiler for people who wish to compile Deadwood on Windows without installing MinGW/Msys.

It can be downloaded here:
