Greetings all,

There has been a few changes to the management of dnscap over the last
couple of months, the main Git repository is now located under DNS-OARC
GitHub account [1], the license has been transferred to DNS-OARC from
ISC and will be updated in the source repository in the coming weeks.

The software is now also compiled using Travis-CI [2] and Jenkins [3] to
test on Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, FreeBSD and OpenBSD.

Some of the recent development of dnscap have been to restructure the
repository and move to autoconf/automake and very recently add better
libpcap usage and thread support [4] which seems to have solved
potential packet loss problems.

A new release will be out in a few weeks and will be announced here on
this list.
