Hi All, 

After initial beta testing with ICANN we are please to announce the 2.1.0b2 release of Hedgehog, the dns-stats presenter, is now available for testing. 

Some things to note:

* We recommend this beta is used for testing only, not production.
* The 2.1 release of Hedgehog is codenamed ‘Daurian’, a subspecies of hedgehog. 2.2 will be the ‘Bare-bellied’ release. 
* As of 2.1 debian packages are now available from ppa:dns-stats/presenter. Please see the documentation at
  for how to upgrade from an existing 2.0 install using packages. Testing of this upgrade path is encouraged. 
* Installation from source is still supported in this release but users are encouraged to migrate to using packages.

* Added new graph to display Destination Address vs Query rate
* Added option to group nodes in selection tab by Country/City/Instance (specified in nodes.csv) and config option for default choice.
* Added rssacd demon to collect rssac load-time and zone-size data. Requires management IP Address of node to be specified in nodes.csv
* Added GeoLite2 data created by MaxMind, available from http://www.maxmind.com <http://www.maxmind.com/>

* Updated database_update_nodes script to support new fields.

Maintenance/Bug fixes:

* check_user_perms script now does all user checks, check db access and data dir. access. Used in new database_update_nodes will gradually be used by all tools.
* Improved chart sizes, font sizes and data ordering in some graphs
* Significant enhancements to installation and management scripts and configuration files.
* Fixed appearance of gvis column chart vAxis
* Fixed error in rssac reports where ".root-servers.org <http://root-servers.org/>" was used instead of ".root-servers.net <http://root-servers.net/>”.

We plan a release candidate in early May.
