YADIFA 2.1.6

The latest version of YADIFA can be found on the web site for YADIFA http://www.yadifa.eu/download.
No update of YADIFA manual: YM210.pdf.
No announcement was made for release 2.1.5. The fixes of both releases 2.1.5 and 2.1.6 are mentioned.

Fixes 2.1.6:
        - Fixed an issue where the referral would not be measured for UDP on a optimised build.

Fixes 2.1.5:
        - Fixed an issue where getting a huge incremental transfer would prevent the server from answering queries while applying the changes.
        - Fixed an issue serving IXFR that would occur when a incremental change step was bigger than 64KB
        - Fixed an issue for Solaris with the memory alignment fix not active everywhere
        - Fixed an issue on the Solaris build settings
        - Fixed an issue where sometimes yadifad would not find a configuration file given as a parameter with a relative path
        - Fixed an issue where a wild-card would not be properly returned with an AXFR
        - Fixed an issue where dynamically updating a zone at a speed such that the zone file would need to be written multiple times on disk
          before finishing the previous write could lead to a deadloc

Known issues:

          - —enable-message does not work on OpenBSD 32-bit
          - Removing the last key of a signed zone is permitted by YADIFA, but triggers some chicken-egg issue with signatures
          - Adding and or removing NSEC3PARAM dynamically is not properly handled.
