v0-8-8-2023-05-26

v0.8.8 - 2023-05-26

  • New feature
    • IPv6 queries are now supported. Responding to IPv6 isn't supported yet. To use this, be sure to set ipv4_only: false since this isn't the default. Thanks to @bjyoungblood for this feature.

v0-8-7-2023-02-12

v0.8.7 - 2023-02-12

  • Fixed
    • Fix Elixir 1.15 deprecation warnings

v0-8-6-2022-06-14

v0.8.6 - 2022-06-14

  • Fixed
    • Fixed an issue that caused the DNS bridge to stop working with OTP 25.

v0-8-5-2022-04-28

v0.8.5 - 2022-04-28

  • Fixed
    • If a network interface changes IP addresses, there would be a flurry of crashes when it was no longer possible to bind to the interface. This stops behavior and shuts down the responder for the interface.

v0-8-4-2021-11-13

v0.8.4 - 2021-11-13

  • New feature

    • VintageNet is an optional dependency now. This makes it possible to use MdnsLite outside of Nerves much more easily.
  • Fixed

    • Use the new DNS encoder/decoder from OTP 24.1.5. This fixes a regression with OTP 24.1.2 where the DNS encoder and decoder was updated to be more correct in how it handled the DNS class. mDNS repurposes the high bit of the DNS class. Previously we had gotten lucky. OTP 24.1.5 adds support for the bit. To make sure that MdnsLite can work on other OTP versions, the new OTP code has been vendored and included with MdnsLite.

v0-8-3-2021-10-07

v0.8.3 - 2021-10-07

  • Fixed
    • Added configuration and runtime support for setting the instance name. This was incorrectly removed in v0.8.0. By default, MdnsLite will advertise itself using the hostname. This works, but looks unfriendly in the service discovery results. Setting the instance name lets you advertise with a nice human readable name. Thanks to Mat Trudel for both catching this regression and fixing it.

v0-8-2-2021-09-23

v0.8.2 - 2021-09-23

  • Fixed
    • Fix calls to :socket.setopt/3 to support OTP 22 and OTP 23. Thanks to Peter Madsen for finding this and providing a fix.

v0-8-1-2021-09-19

v0.8.1 - 2021-09-19

  • Fixed
    • Fix interface monitor crash when a network interface gets removed.

v0-8-0

v0.8.0

This release is a major update to MdnsLite to support making queries in addition to responding to queries. The runtime API is not backwards compatible. If you're only using the application environment to configure MdnsLite, you should be ok.

  • New features

    • Make mDNS requests
    • Add a DNS bridge for Erlang's DNS resolver. This enables Erlang distribution and :gen_tcp users to be passed .local hostnames. See docs for how to configure
    • mDNS record caching
    • mDNS record inspection - both for ones MdnsLite advertises and for ones in the caches
    • AAAA record support - Proper IPv6 support is still not available
  • Bug fixes

    • MdnsLite now uses :socket to send and receive mDNS messages. This fixes several issues where multicast packets were being mixed up between network interfaces.

v0-7-0

v0.7.0

  • Breaking change

    • Change optional dependency on VintageNet to a mandatory one. Probably all :mdns_lite users were already using VintageNet and since Mix releases doesn't support optional dependencies yet, some users got errors when the release misordered them. This avoids the problem.
  • Improvements

    • Removed the :dns package dependency. There as an Erlang crypto API call in a dependency of :dns that was removed in OTP 24. This change makes it possible to use :mdns_lite on OTP 24 without worrying about a missing crypto API call.

v0-6-7

v0.6.7

  • Improvements
    • Exclude "wwan0" by default. These interfaces are cellular links like ppp and it's not appropriate to respond to mDNS on them either.

v0-6-6

v0.6.6

  • Bug fixes
    • Advertise services based on service names & not hostname. Thanks to Matt Trudel for this fix.

v0-6-5

v0.6.5

  • Bug fixes
    • Reuse addresses and ports when binding to the multicast socket to coexist with other mDNS software. Thanks to Eduardo Cunha and Matt Myers for the updates.

v0-6-4

v0.6.4

  • New features
    • Support custom TXT record contents. See the :txt_payload. Thanks to Eduardo Cunha for adding this.

v0-6-3

v0.6.3

  • Bug fixes
    • Update default so that ppp interfaces are ignored. This prevents surprises of having a responder run on a cellular link.

v0-6-2

v0.6.2

  • Bug fixes
    • Fix crash when handling undecodable mDNS messages

v0-6-1

v0.6.1

  • Handle nil from VintageNet reports

v0-4-0

v0.4.0
