Added a new include file with function typedefs for the DLZ “dlopen” driver. [RT #23629]
Added a tool able to generate malformed packets to allow testing of how named handles them. [RT #24096]
Improved the startup time for an authoritative server with a large number of zones by making the zone task table of variable size rather than fixed size. This means that authoritative servers with lots of zones will be serving that zone data much sooner. [RT #24406]
Merged in the NetBSD ATF test framework (currently version 0.12) for development of future unit tests. Use configure –with-atf to build ATF internally or configure –with-atf=prefix to use an external copy. [RT #23209]
Added more verbose error reporting from DLZ LDAP. [RT #23402]
The DLZ “dlopen” driver is now built by default, no longer requiring a configure option. To disable it, use “configure–without-dlopen”. (Note: driver not supported on win32.) [RT#23467]
Replaced compile time constant with STDTIME_ON_32BITS. [RT #23587]
Make –with-gssapi default for ./configure. [RT #23738]
