I am currently working on the next version of galium, the software that runs the .ing top level domain name. This update will be minor upgrade-wise (going from a 0.2 to a 0.3), but will provide a few new features, and will pave the way to galium 1.0.
What Galium 0.3 will do:
- Enforce domain limits per user
- Fix the last cron update “bug” (it’s not really a bug, but it is annoying)
- Finally allow the adding of A, NS, MX etc records, so a glue name server is not required (this means that requests are handled by the slave servers directly! Can anyone spell speed increase?)
- It will not have hardcoded SOA records… this will be able to be changed. Somehow.
The future (Galium 0.4 and higher):
- Allow domains to be registered via an API (probably with MyInfo)
- Keep a backup of all (or some) previous generated TLD configurations somewhere
- Support more backends then just BIND
- Have a WHOIS server
