- Update: Included DynDns plug-in now supports dyn.com update URL formats - for use with dyndns built into many NAT routers.
- Update: "Custom" option in installer is back (was temporarily removed in build 118).

V. 6.0 build 118 - 30 Dec 2016:
- Fixed: Installer issues on Windows Server 2016 / Windows 10.
- Fixed: DNS Records / Export Wizard / IP addresses to "hosts" or ".csv" file - would crash program (record editor only) when using the ".csv" file format option and one or more AAAA-records were included.
- Update: Added "autodiscover" to SRV-record service drop-down options.
- Update: "Custom" option temporarily removed from installer (caused installer crash).

V. 6.0 build 116 - 18 Nov 2016:
- Fixed: Incorrect response to DS-record query when both delegating parent and child zones present on server.
- Fixed: In some scenarios, re-using a zone SOA-serial number caused a database conflict and program crash.
- Fixed: Extremely long log lines (+32767 characters) would in some situations cause program crash.
- Fixed: Clicking "Scan forward zones" in "IP-to-Name Mappings" dialog caused program error (record editor only) if no forward zones exist.
- Fixed: Default Zone Values dialog reverted to default values after service restart (for clean v. 6 installs only - not upgrades).
- Removed: The "Tools" directory. The "SDNSFileLib" library (now "Raw Log library") and the "FilterRawLog" command line tool are now separate downloads / open source.

- Fixed: Failed to zone transfer zones containing NSEC3 records with zero length type bit map.

V. 5.2 build 129 - 11 Mar 2015:
- Fixed: The "DNSKEY only" setting in the "DNSSEC Key Set" dialog was not saved to disk, and therefore forgotten (reverted to "off") when the
"DNSSEC Sign Zone" dialog was closed.
- Fixed: Program crash when serving data from a DNS zone containing one or more NSEC records, but no NSEC record for zone name (incorrectly DNSSEC signed zone).
