Change Log

GnuDIP 1.0. This version was a test version to see if we were actually able to make happen what we wanted to happen. This version was unable to return a message to clients if authentication was successful or not, but basic dynamic DNS was functional.
GnuDIP 2.0.1. This was a total rewrite of GnuDIP 1.0. Clients and servers are NOT backwards compatible. We are still using the same idea of zone file rewriting, but have implemented a queuing feature to avoid name server overload. This version also feature s a multi-threaded server so it should be plenty speedy. No more code directly invoked by users is suid root. Now there is a root crontab that checks the queue directly. We have also taken as many steps as we could to simplify installation and configuration. T here are some pretty nifty features in the web interface. We no longer support a windows client, but we figured the web interface was the most portable client tool of them all. We are almost done with a X client written in GTK which we will be releasing soon after this package.
GnuDIP 2.0.2. Fixed bugs in the install script
GnuDIP 2.0.3. Added offline functionality. Self registration complete. Minor bug fixes.
GnuDIP 2.0.4. Fixed some bugs that allowed hostnames named didn't like. Added wild card matching in restricted usernames. Allow own html file as a header for the login page.
GnuDIP 2.0.5. Added logging features to All central configuration is kept in /etc/gnudip.conf and security regarding has been improved thanks to Randolph Chung of Debain (Expect a Debian package on the web page soon). Fixed several minor bugs
GnuDIP 2.0.6. Fixed a possible security hole. install has better environment checking. Debian package now available.
GnuDIP 2.1.0. Swiched to MD5 based encryption to be more protable. Added multiple domain support, and all domain options are configurable per domain. Moved gdip-named and cron entries internal to gdips, so now the interval it updates your zonefiles can be much smaller.
