Dents is a from-scratch implementation of the server side of the DNS protocol, sharing no code with any other project. Among its several features are compatibility with named, a modular driver system and an extensible control facility which allows the administrator to control the running server.
You should have installed glib from the GNOME project (ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk). It should contain support for POSIX-threads to be thread-safe. Our "./configure" will disable threads if glib doesn't use pthreads. If you would like to use the control facility, you will also need
ORBit (also from the GNOME project) and support for POSIX-threads. The versions being used by some of the developers are:
but prior versions will also likely work.
What's New in This Release:
· clients/gdents-admin/mockup.pl (on_zone_info_clicked): Added fake values so you can watch it sort. Haven't decided how to display the value of an SOA record. Right now, comma delineated.
· clients/gdents-admin/ctlfac.glade: (zone_info window) added a menubar, statusbars and progressbar, put the old zone_info window in a notebook, put the old zone_info clist in a scrolled window. Added sort routines for the columns.
