Deadwood 3.0.01 released

I have released Deadwood 3.0.01 today. With this release made, no new features will be added to the Deadwood recursive resolver for the foreseeable future. However, bug fixes and other routine maintenance will still be applied to this software package.

Deadwood is now a stable recursive resolver suitable for embedded systems, desktop PCs, or on internet servers. Deadwood is fully 64-bit compatible, has optional support for IPv6, and does not require threads to resolve records.

Deadwood 3.0.01 will be the recursive resolver for MaraDNS 2.0, which I will release shortly, as well as being an optional recursive DNS server to use in MaraDNS 1.4.

It has been a pleasure developing Deadwood and MaraDNS for nearly a decade. I will continue to support MaraDNS and Deadwood but have no plans to add new features once MaraDNS 2.0 is released.

In addition, I no longer need to accept donations for MaraDNS. All Deadwood and MaraDNS support needs to be done via the MaraDNS mailing list.
