We have a first candidate for the 1.6.0 release of getdns.
Mayor change from previous release is that the autotools based build system has been replaced with a CMake build system.
The motivation for this change is to have Windows be a first class build platform for getdns thereby increasing the ease of use of the getdns library in Windows applications. getdns and stubby can now be built using a native Windows build toolchain, ideally via the Visual Studio project. This work will also facilitate developing a User Interface for Stubby on Windows.
Another change in the build system is that the eventloop support libraries (for
libuv) will now automatically be build when those libraries are detected.
Besides the build system changes, this release has also some bug fixes, amongst which:
Better TLS connection setup timeout handling, which makes getdns and stubby work better with DoT servers that are slow on initial connection (because they might be under attack).
Correct handling of UDP Payload size by getdns servers (i.e. listeners)
Please review these release candidates carefully, if all is well, the actual release will follow Friday the 28th of February.
