Name        : dnsmasq
Product     : Fedora 16
Version     : 2.58
Release     : 2.fc16

Summary     : A lightweight DHCP/caching DNS server
Description :
Dnsmasq is lightweight, easy to configure DNS forwarder and DHCP server.
It is designed to provide DNS and, optionally, DHCP, to a small network.
It can serve the names of local machines which are not in the global
DNS. The DHCP server integrates with the DNS server and allows machines
with DHCP-allocated addresses to appear in the DNS with names configured
either in each host or in a central configuration file. Dnsmasq supports
static and dynamic DHCP leases and BOOTP for network booting of diskless

Update Information:

This update corrects a bug in the previous package, which enabled the dnsmasq service on upgrade from previous versions, even though the service has never been enabled by default. This should not be done, and it causes problems for NetworkManager and libvirt.
includes systemd changes and increase the version from 2.52 to 2.58

  [ 1 ] Bug #734903 - having dnsmasq start by default and bind to all interfaces breaks libvirt bridging
  [ 2 ] Bug #694932 - Providing native systemd file for upcoming F15 Feature Systemd

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update dnsmasq' at the command line.
