Previous versions of this plug-in used an IP-to-country database from software77.net, which unfortunately is no longer available.
To replace this database / supplier, we found two new free IP-to-Country databases from
Rather than implementing direct support for their respective file formats, we have created our own data file format (for smaller file size and faster load), and provide converter utilities for their files. This also makes it easier to added files from other suppliers in the future.
The updated plug-in now also supports IPv6 addresses.
And the "IP" variant of the plug-in has been replaced with a new "Clone" variant. The "Clone" variant clones response A/AAAA records from the host name specified for the region of the client.
The updated plug-in is version 2.0.0.0901 - representing a new versioning scheme that we will use for all plug-ins going forward (the previous release was version 9.1.1).
(The first 3 parts of the version number are now "semantic", and the fourth part indicates which version of Simple DNS Plus the plug-in is compatible with).
