  - Version update to git snapshot 1.17.1+20200724:
    * fixes missing input validation on hostnames returned by DNS
      servers (bsc#1188881, CVE-2021-3672)
    * If ares_getaddrinfo() was terminated by an ares_destroy(),
      it would cause crash
    * Crash in sortaddrinfo() if the list size equals 0 due to
      an unexpected DNS response
    * Expand number of escaped characters in DNS replies as
      per RFC1035 5.1 to prevent spoofing
    * Use unbuffered /dev/urandom for random data to prevent early startup
      performance issues
  - missing_header.patch: upstreamed
* Sat Nov 21 2020 Marcus Rueckert <>
  - add BR for pkg-config to get the provides in the devel package
* Thu Nov 19 2020 Adam Majer <>
  - ares_dns.h, missing_header.patch: re-add missing header in last release
* Tue Nov 17 2020 Adam Majer <>
  - Version update to 1.17.0
    * avoid read-heap-buffer-overflow in ares_parse_soa_reply found during
    * Avoid theoretical buffer overflow in RC4 loop comparison
    * Empty hquery->name could lead to invalid memory access
    * ares_parse_{a,aaaa}_reply() could return a larger *naddrttls than was
      passed in (bsc#1178882, CVE-2020-8277)
    * Update help information for adig, acountry, and ahost
    * Test Suite now uses dynamic system-assigned ports rather than hardcoded
      ports to prevent failures in containers
    * Detect remote DNS server does not support EDNS using rules from RFC 6891
    * Source tree has been reorganized to use a more modern layout
    * Allow parsing of CAA Resource Record
    Bug fixes:
    * readaddrinfo bad sizeof()
    * Test cases should honor HAVE_WRITEV flag, not depend on WIN32
    * FQDN with trailing period should be queried first
    * ares_getaddrinfo() was returning members of the struct as garbage values if
      unset, and was not honoring ai_socktype and ai_protocol hints.
    * ares_gethostbyname() with AF_UNSPEC and an ip address would fail
    * Properly document ares_set_local_ip4() uses host byte order
    For details, see

  - remove unnecessary BuildRequires
  - fix building on SLE12 systems
* Fri Sep 11 2020 Tomáš Chvátal <>
  - simplify conditions bit to make it tad more readable
* Thu Sep 10 2020 Atri Bhattacharya <>
  - Implement multibuild specfile to split out tests into its own
    flavor; this way we can build and run tests, which require
    static lib, as well as avoid packaging the latter without issues
    with the installed cmake file..
* Wed Jul 08 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
    * CMake: Add CPACK functionality for DEB and RPM
    * CMake: Generate PDB files during build
    * CMake: Support manpage installation
    Bug fixes:
    * Fix bad expectation in IPv6 localhost test.
    * AutoTools: use XC_CHECK_BUILD_FLAGS instead of XC_CHECK_USER_FLAGS to
      prevent complaints about CPPFLAGS in CFLAGS.
    * 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
  - Drop regression.patch which have been fixed upstream
  - Refresh disable-live-tests.patch
  - Remove static lib since its required when doing tests and we dont want it
    included in package
  - Run spec-cleaner
* Mon Feb 03 2020 Adam Majer <>
  - Upgrade to latest snapshot from 2020-01-17
  - disable-live-tests.patch: refreshed
  - regression.patch: fix a regression in DNS results that contain
    both A and AAAA answers.
* Tue Jan 28 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 06 2020 Todd R <>
  - Switch to cmake-based build.
    Some packages need the cmake build files.
* Fri Nov 15 2019 Tomáš Chvátal <>
