Preparing ddclient 3.8.2

It's been announced on the mailing list a while ago: we are preparing a new release of ddclient. It would be nice if there were some people out there who could test the latest version in subversion and give some feedback. If there aren't any obstructing bugs, I will let this beast out.

Important notice: changes are coming

There are a few changes coming.

  • Because of some recent personal changes I'm not having enough time to work on this project any more. There are only some obvious bugreports which get solved quickly but others stay there forever.
  • Dyndns decided to change their business model and they stopped offering free account [1]. It made me decide to make dyndns less important for ddclient.
  • Sourceforge decided to retire the hosted apps [2] which means this trac environment will come to an end.... read more

Preparing for a new release

Unless new bugs are reported, you may expect ddclient-3.8.1 pretty soon. But we can't release a new version without testers so please feel free to test the pretty stable version in subversion.

Ddclient website moved to trac

Since sourceforge decided to stop using wikispaces, ddclient has been moved by the sf-team to trac. The pages can be found at http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/ddclient/ and the ddclient startpage should point to that location soon.

Ddclient needs developers!

It looks like the current developers are to busy working on other stuff they don't have time to contribute to ddclient. If you know some perl and want to work on ddclient, please contact wimpunk on irc or use the sourceforge instructions.

Website moved to wiki

Hi everyone out there,

Recently Kmos did a great job by moving website to the sf.net wiki. It can all be found at the original ddclient website http://ddclient.sf.net and we even opened a mailing list to let you post all your comment. You can find the mailing list at https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/ddclient-wiki
Have fun and send us your comments.

Kind regards,

ddclient 3.7.2 released with a little bug

Finally another release of ddclient. It has some nice patches and I would suggest every 3.7.x user to update.
Unfortunately it has a little bug. The version number in the ddclient program isn't changed. So please update it yourself.
We're currently working on a wiki based website for ddclient so maybe ddclient will get good documentation once.

ddclient-cvs with postscript by Larry Hendric

Larry Hendrickson posted a patch for running a postscript after updating the dynamic dns service. The only thing you need to add to the configuration is:
The patch is applied to the cvs-version. It's not tested yet but the source looks cool to me.
Btw, Larry if you're out there, please contact me. When I replied to you message I got "domain not found"...
