  3. Resolved defect that prevented the "Tip of the Day" dialog window from appearing when requested explicitly from the application's main menu. It should always appear in this case, even if the "show tips on startup" option is disabled.

DNS2Go Client Version (Internal test build)
  1. Simplified the reconnection retry logic and made it more robust. First, the default number of times a DNS2Go service connection will be re-attempted has been increased from 25 to 60. Next, the retry wait logic has been altered to increase the retry frequency. Connection retries will now start within 1 minute of a connection failure (e.g. a spurious disconnection), with wait times then doubled up to a 5-minute ceiling.
  2. Improved logging that occurs within the UDP heartbeat processing thread. The thread will now warn the user (via an entry in the DNS2Go Client log file) when UDP heartbeats time out repeatedly, and advise that they open inbound port 1227 UDP on their firewall. It will then mark the TCP heartbeat attempt and report any errors that result.
  3. IP address change detections are now logged in the DNS2Go Client log file. Users will now have access to historical information about IP address changes, which will be useful for troubleshooting and informational purposes.
  4. Resolved a few cosmetic bugs with window colors and control positioning.
  5. Numerous compilation-level performance optimizations.

DNS2Go Client Version (Version 2.7)
  1. Modified the client to support the new commercial licensing model.

  2. Modified the domain registration wizard.

  3. Modified the EULA and AUP to be consistent with the new commercial licensing model.

DNS2Go Client Version (Version 2.6)

Implemented the new DNS2Go Client Messaging System.
  1. Interface change - the client status tab (front page) now provides a "messages" indicator in the service summary pane. When system messages are waiting to be read, this indicator becomes a hyperlink, allowing the user to click and read system messages. The indicator is not hyperlinked when no messages are waiting to be read.

  2. Interface change - the application tray icon context menu now supports a "read messages" menu option that is only enabled when messages are waiting to be read by the user.

  3. Interface change - the application tray icon now interpolates with an envelope icon when system messages are awaiting for the current user. The icon flashes between the DNS2Go icon and the envelope icon every half a second.

  4. Electing to read waiting messages will simply log the user into the web-based DNS2Go account manager, which is where the message reading process will take place.

    Once the user takes an action to read waiting system messages, the tray icon will stop flashing, and will remain dormant for approx 2 hours.

Release Notes DNS2Go Client Version (Version 2.5)
  1. Added an option of "All Day" to the RAS Scheduler. This option allows user to easily schedule a dial-up event, which lasts all day.

  2. Added the option for the RAS Scheduler to "maintain a dial-up connection". If this option is selected, the DNS2Go client will attempt to re-dial a dropped connection indefinitely.

  3. Added an offline option to " Retain last known settings (do not change my domain)". Essentially if the option is selected, no changes will be made to the customer's domain when they go offline.

  4. Updated EULA and Acceptable Use Policy in the installer.

  5. Added new "default" buttons to the "settings" and "options" tab; clicking the button will allow you to restore the tab's default settings. On the settings tab, you can restore just the online settings, just the offline settings, or both at once.

  6. Altered the main options tab window to allow users to enter a custom number of connection retry attempts. Previously, this was a drop-down box with a maximum retry limit of 50; this was too limiting for some users. They can now enter whatever value suits their needs (up to 9999999). Defaults to 25.

  7. Numerous usability and bounds checking improvements.
