5:14 PM - DNS Ports

All dns ports have been checked for security updates and updated including BIND 9.5 and 9.6.  I've removed BIND 9.4 from mports as it's included with the base system (current) and it's the oldest version still supported.  It's also three versions back at this point.

7:33 AM - mDNSResponder

Over the weekend, I connected mDNSResponder in src to the build.  mDNSResponder is apple's implementation of multicast DNS

Currently, the mdnsd and dnsextd daemons as well as the command line tool dns-sd are available.  I've also included the libdns_sd library.

FIles are located in src/contrib/mDNSResponder and src/apache/

2:23 PM - mports/dns updates

I've updated every port in dns today.  I've also added several new ports.

bind97  - version 9.7 of the popular dns server

autotrust - download new dnssec root zones automatically

ldns & unbound: a library containing RFC compliant dns resolver code and a bsd licensed resolver

Users of c-ares or ddclient probably want to update their ports now.
