- c-ares 1.28.1

  * Emit warnings when deprecated c-ares functions are used.
    This can be disabled by passing a compiler definition of
  * Add function `ares_search_dnsrec()` to search for records
    using the new DNS record data structures. [PR #719]
  * Rework internals to pass around `ares_dns_record_t` instead of
    binary data, this introduces new public functions of
    `ares_query_dnsrec()` and `ares_send_dnsrec()`. [PR #730]

  * tests: when performing simulated queries, reduce timeouts
    to make tests run faster
  * Replace configuration file parsers with memory-safe parser. [PR #725]
  * Remove `acountry` completely, the manpage might still get
    installed otherwise. [Issue #718]

  * CMake: don't overwrite global required libraries/definitions/includes
    which could cause build errors for projects chain building c-ares.
    [Issue #729]
  * On some platforms, `netinet6/in6.h` is not included by `netinet/in.h`
    and needs to be included separately. [PR #728]
  * Fix a potential memory leak in `ares_init()`. [Issue #724]
  * Some platforms don't have the `isascii()` function.
    Implement as a macro. [PR #721]
  * CMake: Fix Chain building if CMAKE runtime paths not set
  * NDots configuration should allow a value of zero. [PR #735]

- c-ares 1.27.0
  * Moderate. CVE-2024-25629. Reading malformatted /etc/resolv.conf,
    /etc/nsswitch.conf or the HOSTALIASES file could result in a crash.
    GHSA-mg26-v6qh-x48q (CVE-2024-25629, bsc#1220279)

  * New function ares_queue_active_queries() to retrieve number of in-flight
    queries. PR #712
  * New function ares_queue_wait_empty() to wait for the number of in-flight
    queries to reach zero. PR #710
  * New ARES_FLAG_NO_DEFLT_SVR for ares_init_options() to return a failure if
    no DNS servers can be found rather than attempting to use This
    also introduces a new ares status code of ARES_ENOSERVER. PR #713

  * EDNS Packet size should be 1232 as per DNS Flag Day. PR #705

  * Fix warning due to ignoring return code of write(). PR #709
  * CMake: don't override target output locations if not top-level. Issue #708

Fri Feb  9 07:35:39 UTC 2024 - Dominique Leuenberger <>

- Ensure multibuild flavors result in different src names.

Sat Feb  3 09:40:16 UTC 2024 - Andreas Stieger <>

- c-ares 1.26.0:
  * Event Thread support. Integrators are no longer required to
    monitor the file descriptors registered by c-ares for events
    and call ares_process() when enabling the event thread feature
    via ARES_OPT_EVENT_THREAD passed to ares_init_options().
  * Added flags to are_dns_parse() to force RAW packet parsing
  * Mark ares_fds() as deprecated
  * Bug fixes
- move tests into a build flavor to avoid gtest/gmock build loop

Mon Jan  8 10:16:54 UTC 2024 - Adam Majer <> - 1.25

- Update to version 1.25
 o Rewrite ares_strsplit() as a wrapper for ares__buf_split() for memory
   safety reasons.
 o The ahost utility now uses ares_getaddrinfo() and returns both IPv4 and
   IPv6 addresses by default.

Bug Fixes:
 o Tests: Live reverse lookups for Google's public DNS servers no longer
   return results, replace with CloudFlare pubic DNS servers.
 o Connection failures should increment the server failure count first or a
   retry might be enqueued to the same server
 o On systems that don't implement the ability to enumerate network interfaces
   the stubs used the wrong prototype.
 o Fix minor warnings and documentation typos
 o Fix support for older GoogleTest versions
 o getrandom() may require sys/random.h on some systems.
 o Fix building tests with symbol hiding enabled.

- 0001-Use-RPM-compiler-options.patch: dropped, obsolete

Tue Jan  2 11:35:57 UTC 2024 - Adam Majer <> - 1.24

- Update to version 1.24
  * Add support for IPv6 link-local DNS servers. Nameserver formats
    can now accept the 0face suffix, and a new ares_get_servers_csv()
    function was added to return servers that can contain the link-local
    interface name.

  * Unbundle GoogleTest for test cases. Package maintainers will now
    need torequire GoogleTest (GMock) as a build dependency if
    building tests. New GoogleTest versions require C++14 or later.
  * Replace nameserver parsing code to use new memory-safe functions.
  * Replace the sortlist parser with new memory-safe functions.
  * Various warning fixes and dead code removal. 

 * Old Linux versions require POSIX_C_SOURCE or _GNU_SOURCE to
   compile with thread safety support
 * A non-responsive DNS server that caused timeouts wouldn't
   increment thefailure count, this would lead to other servers
   not being tried. Regression introduced in 1.22.0
 * Some projects that depend on c-ares expect invalid parameter
   option valuespassed into ares_init_options() to simply be
   ignored. This behavior has been restored
 * getrandom() can fail if the kernel doesn't support
   the syscall, fall back to another random source
 * ares_cancel() when performing ares_gethostbyname() or
   ares_getaddrinfo()with AF_UNSPEC, if called after one address
   class was returned but before the other address class, it
   would return ARES_SUCCESS rather than ARES_ECANCELLED

- disable-live-tests.patch: dropped, not needed

Fri Dec  1 13:04:38 UTC 2023 - Adam Majer <> - 1.23

- Update to version 1.23
    Introduce optional (but on by default) thread-safety for the c-ares library. This has no API nor ABI implications.
    resolv.conf in modern systems uses attempts and timeouts options instead of the old retrans and retry options.
    Query caching support based on TTL of responses. Can be enabled via ares_init_options() with ARES_OPT_QUERY_CACHE. 
    ares_init_options() for ARES_OPT_UDP_PORT and ARES_OPT_TCP_PORT accept theport in host byte order, but it was reading it as network byte order. Regression introduced in 1.20.0.
    ares_init_options() for ARES_FLAG_NOSEARCH was not being honored forares_getaddrinfo() or ares_gethostbyname(). Regression introduced in 1.16.0.
    Autotools MacOS and iOS version check was failing
    Environment variables passed to c-ares are meant to be an override for system configuration. Regression introduced in 1.22.0.
    Spelling fixes as detected by codespell.
    The timeout returned by ares_timeout() was truncated to milliseconds butvalidated to microseconds which could cause a user to attempt to process timeouts prior to the timeout actually expiring.
    CMake was not honoring CXXFLAGS passed in via the environment which couldcause compile and link errors with distribution hardening flags during packaging.
    Fix Windows UWP and Cygwin compilation.
    ares_set_servers_*() for legacy reasons needs to accept an empty server listand zero out all servers. This results in an inoperable channel and thus is only used in simulation testing, but we don't want to break users. Regression introduced in 1.21.0. 

Changes in version 1.22.1
    Fix /etc/hosts processing performance with all entries using same IPaddress. Large hosts files using the same IP address for all entries could use exponential time.
    Fix typos in manpages
    Fix OpenWatcom building 

Changes in version 1.22.0
    ares_reinit() is now implemented to re-read any system configuration and immediately apply to an existing ares channel
    The adig command line program has been rewritten and its format now more closely matches that of BIND's dig utility
    The new DNS message parser and writer functions have now been made public
    RFC9460 HTTPS and SVCB records are now supported
    RFC6698 TLSA records are now supported
    The server list is now internally dynamic and can be changed without impacting existing queries
    Hosts file processing is now cached until the file is detected to be changed to speed up repetitive lookups of large hosts files 
    Internally all DNS messages are now written using the new DNS writing functions
    EDNS is now enabled by default
    Internal cleanups in function prototypes 
    Randomize retry penalties to prevent thundering herd issues when dns servers throttle requests
    Fix Windows build error for missing if_indextoname() 

Sat Oct 28 16:45:26 UTC 2023 - Andreas Stieger <>

  Bug fixes:
  * TCP back to back queries were broken
  * Ensure queries for ares_getaddrinfo() are not requeued during
  * ares_getaddrinfo() should not retry other address classes if
    one address class has already been returned
  * Avoid production ill-formed result when qualifying a name
    with the root domain
  * Fix missing prefix for CMake generated libcares.pc
  * DNS server ports can now be read from system configuration
    instead of defaulting to port 53, aka openBSD resolv.conf format
  * Replace usages of sprintf with snprintf

Mon May 22 13:56:59 UTC 2023 - Adam Majer <>

- Update to version 1.19.1

Sun Jan 29 09:31:00 UTC 2023 - Martin Hauke <>

- Update to version 1.19.0
  * Low. Stack overflow in ares_set_sortlist() which is used
    during c-ares initialization and typically provided by an
    administrator and not an end user.
    (bsc#1208067, CVE-2022-4904)
    specifying a custom hosts file location.
  Bug fixes:
  * Fix memory leak in reading /etc/hosts when using localhost
  * Fix chain building c-ares when libresolv is already included by
    another project.
  * File lookup should not immediately abort as there may be other
    tries due to search criteria.
  * Asterisks should be allowed in host validation as CNAMEs may
    reference wildcard domains.
  * AutoTools build system referenced bad STDC_HEADERS macro.
  * Even if one address class returns a failure for
    ares_getaddrinfo() we should still return the results we have.
  * Fix ares_getaddrinfo() numerical address resolution with
  * Fix tools and help information.
  * Various documentation fixes and cleanups.
  * Add include guards to ares_data.h
  * c-ares could try to exceed maximum number of iovec entries

Tue Dec  7 16:57:20 UTC 2021 - Adam Majer <>

- update to 1.18.1. Changes since 1.17.2:
  * Allow '/' as a valid character for a returned name for
    CNAME delegation
  * no longer forwards requests for localhost resolution per RFC6761
  * During a domain search, treat ARES_ENODATA as ARES_NXDOMAIN so
    that the search process will continue to the next domain
    in the search.
  * Provide ares_nameser.h as a public interface as needed by NodeJS
  * Add support for URI(Uniform Resource Identifier) records via

- 5c995d5.patch: augment input validation on hostnames to allow _
  as part of DNS response (bsc#1190225)

Thu Aug 12 13:59:07 UTC 2021 - Adam Majer <>

- update to 1.17.2:
  * When building c-ares with CMake, the RANDOM_FILE would not be set
    and therefore downgrade to the less secure random number generator
  * If ares_getaddrinfo() was terminated by an ares_destroy(),
    it would cause a crash
  * Crash in sortaddrinfo() if the list size equals 0 due to
    an unexpected DNS response

    due to applications not performing valiation themselves 

  * ares_malloc(0) is now defined behavior (returns NULL) rather than system-specific to catch edge cases 

  Bug fixes:
  * Building tests should not force building of static libraries except on Windows
  * Relative headers must use double quotes to prevent pulling in a system library

Sat Jan 16 15:05:28 UTC 2021 - Dirk Müller <>

- update to 1.17.1:
    Travis: add iOS target built with CMake (#378)
    Issue #377 suggested that CMake builds for iOS with c-ares were broken. This PR adds an automatic Travis build for iOS CMake.
  - fix build
    External projects were using non-public header ares_dns.h, make public again (#376)
    It appears some outside projects were relying on macros in ares_dns.h, even
    though it doesn't appear that header was ever meant to be public.  That said,
    we don't want to break external integrators so we should distribute this header
  - note that so versioning has moved to
  - note about 1.17.1
  - fix sed gone wrong
    autotools cleanup (#372)
    * buildconf: remove custom logic with autoreconf

  with the installed cmake file..

Wed Jul  8 20:35:17 UTC 2020 - Matthias Eliasson <>

- Version update to 1.16.1
  * Prevent possible use-after-free and double-free in ares_getaddrinfo() if 
    ares_destroy() is called prior to ares_getaddrinfo() completing. 
	Reported by Jann Horn at Google Project Zero.
  * Allow TXT records on CHAOS qclass. Used for retriving things like
    version.bind, version.server, authoris.bind, hostname.bind, and id.server. [3] 
  Bug fixes:
  * Fix Windows Unicode incompatibilities with ares_getaddrinfo() [1]
  * Silence false cast-align compiler warnings due to valid casts of struct
    sockaddr to struct sockaddr_in and struct sockaddr_in6.
  * MacOS should use libresolv for retrieving DNS servers, like iOS
  * CMake build system should populate the INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES property of
    installed targets [2]
  * Correct macros in use for the ares_getaddrinfo.3 man page
- Changes in version 1.16.0
  * Introduction of ares_getaddrinfo() API which provides similar output
    (including proper sorting as per RFC 6724) to the system native API, but
	utilizes different data structures in order to provide additional
	information such as TTLs and all aliases. Please reference the respective
	man pages for usage details.
  * Parse SOA records from ns_t_any response
  * CMake: Provide c-ares version in package export file

  * Fix .onion handling
  * Command line usage was out of date for adig and ahost.
  * Typos in manpages
  * If ares_getenv is defined, it must return a value on all platforms
  * If /etc/resolv.conf has invalid lookup values, use the defaults.
  * Tests: Separate live tests from SetServers* tests as only live tests
    should require internet access.
  * ares_gethostbyname() should return ENODATA if no valid A or AAAA record
    is found, but a CNAME was found.
  * CMake: Rework library function checking to prevent unintended linking
    with system libraries that aren't needed.
  * Due to use of inet_addr() it was not possible to return
    from ares_gethostbyname().
  * CMake: Fix building of tests on Windows

Tue Jan 28 15:52:23 UTC 2020 - Michał Rostecki <>

- Add netcfg as the build requirement and runtime requirement.
  ares_getaddrinfo function uses the getservbyport_r function which
  requires the /etc/services file to function properly. That config
  file is provided by the netcfg package. Unit tests rely on it
  too, hence it has to be a build dependency as well.

Mon Jan  6 17:54:05 UTC 2020 - Todd R <>
