The FreeIPA team is proud to announce bind-dyndb-ldap version 3.2.

It can be downloaded from https://fedorahosted.org/released/bind-dyndb-ldap/. 
The new version has also been built for Fedora 19:

This release includes several fixes.

== Changes in 3.2 ==

[1] An error in dynamic update/transfer/query policy is interpreted as
     most restrictive policy, i.e. nobody is allowed to update/transfer/query
     the zone.

[2] Attempts to update zones with idnsAllowDynUpdate == FALSE are logged.

[3] TTL values > 2^31-1 are interpreted as 0.

[4] All RR types supported by BIND are automatically supported by plugin.
     From now it is enough to add new attribute type to LDAP schema,
     no recompilation is required.

[5] PTR record synchronization deletes only PTR records, but no other records
     (e.g. TXT) under names in the reverse zone.

[6] Various improvements related to logging (dynamic updates, PTR record
     synchronization, LDAP error handling).

== Upgrading ==

An server can be upgraded simply by installing updated rpms. BIND has to be 
restarted manually after the RPM installation.

You will need to clean up configuration file /etc/named.conf if your 
configuration contains typos or other unsupported options.

Downgrading back to any 2.x version is supported under following conditions:
- new object class idnsForwardZone is not utilized
- record types not supported by 2.x versions are not utilized
- configured connection count is >= 3 (to prevent deadlocks in 2.x releases)
