			DLINT VERSION CHANGE LIST

Version 1.4.0 released November 19, 2000
 * Added support for BIND 9 (Dig 9.0.1).

Version 1.3.4 released July 1, 2000
 * Fixed exit status on 2 warning messages and 1 error message.
   [bug reported by Jens Schweikhardt <schweikh@noc.dfn.de>]

Version 1.3.3 released August 16, 1999
 * Bug fix: grep -v changed to grep -iv (compare domains caselessly).
   [fix submitted by Aurobindo Sundaram]
 * Bug fix: nameservers now sorted in SOA serial number order, largest first.
   This way you can dlint the primary server immediately after making changes
   to it (previously had to wait for secondaries to do their update).
   [suggested by don@mars.dgrc.crc.ca (Donald McLachlan)]
 * Optimization: if any nameserver does not return an SOA record in Test 1,
   it is removed from the list of nameservers and a warning is reported.
   This way dlint won't use broken nameservers during the rest of the run.
 * Sanity check domain names of nameservers themselves: any nameserver with
   in-addr.arpa. in its name generates a warning and is skipped.
   [suggested by don@mars.dgrc.crc.ca (Donald McLachlan)]
 * Message about using CNAMEs instead of A RRs except for name servers
   now mentions MX hosts (mail servers) too, as hosts not to use CNAMEs.
   [thanks to Domain Admin <domain@uni2.dk>]

Version 1.3.2 released September 26, 1998
 * Bug fix: when looking up reverse domain name or IP, use default nameserver
   instead of specifying the zone nameserver, because there's a good chance
   it's served by some other nameserver.
 * Bug fix: two WARNING situations didn't set the proper exit code.
 * Bug fix: digparse didn't always handle "@" correctly in regular RRs
   when using DiG 8.1.
 * Bug fix: signal interrupt handler now forces dlint to exit.
 * Bug fix: signal interrupt handler now properly removes temp files.
 * Bug fix: recursive dlint: parent now handles child interruptions and
   usage errors properly.
 * Man page now documents all exit statuses (statii?)

Version 1.3.1 released July 18, 1998
 * Gnu General Public Licensing

Version 1.3.0 released May 17, 1998
 * Compares SOA serial numbers across all nameservers (warning if dissimilar).
 * Generate error if any zone has no nameservers.
 * Generate warning if any zone has only 1 nameserver (needs 2 or more).
 * Fixed localhost/127.0.0.1 processing and added some special conditions.
 * Prints number of PTR or A records found, so you can tell if it's 0.
 * Proper use of phrase "zone" instead of "domain" where applicable.
 * When recommending CNAME RR instead of A RR for duplicate host names for one
   IP address, we now mention _not_ to use CNAME if host is a nameserver.
 * All zone records now checked for illegal '#' character at begin of record
   (previously was only checking A RRs).

Version 1.2.0 released Dec 16, 1997
 * DiG 8.1 support (from BIND 8.1.1).
 * External utility digparse included in distribution.
 * Special error when host name has "#" as first char (wrong comment symbol).
 * More platforms tested on (HP/UX).
 * Adds to existing PATH now instead of overwriting it.
 * Trapping signals to remove temporary files.
 * Temporary files now stored in /var/tmp instead of /tmp (they get big).

Version 1.1.3 released never
 * Improved error message when domain specified is not a zone.
 * New email address for author.

Version 1.1.2 released Feb 20, 1997
 * Added missing single quote on line 254 [thanks to Chris Wedgwood, Bernhard Weisshuhn]
 * Makefile now includes CHANGES file in distribution.
 * Man-page extension character has its own variable in Makefile.

Version 1.1.1 released Jan 21, 1997
 * Fixed some echos with vars, needed double quotes, not single.
 * Missing end-single-quote on one line causing a syntax error [thanks to
   David Osborn, Chris Wedgwood].
 * Fixed bug when multiple PTR recs are returned for a given inaddr.arpa.
   (we report that as an error, then loop thru each PTR rec for compares).
 * Suggests CNAME instead of A record when PTR rec points someplace else.
 * Miscellaneous coding improvements.
 * Miscellaneous output improvements.
 * README: Added Installation, Running, See Also sections, and URL to BIND package.

Version 1.1 released Jan 5, 1995
 * First release.
