Release notes

Version 0.4.0-a1

  • The msi and zip files now includes an alpha release of Stubby Manager GUI see this page for details. This installs alongside the existing install and should not interfere with existing installs. (Chocolatey package does not contain this yet.) The alpha is not feature complete and should be used with care, see Stubby Manager GUI.
  • Stubby can now be installed as a Windows service, see this README.md for details.

Version 0.3.0

  • Update to use Stubby 0.3.0.
  • This release is built with the Visual Studio toolchain. Previous releases were built with MinGW.

Version 0.2.6

  • Update to use Stubby 0.2.6

Version 0.2.5

  • Previous versions of the installer were numbered 0.0.1 to 0.0.7. From this release onward we are adopting a new policy. Installer releases will have a 4 component version a.b.c.d. a.b.c gives the Stubby version. d indicates the installer package revision, starting at 0 for the first packaging of a given Stubby version.

  • The 0.2.5.0 release now provides a 32bit install as well as a 64bit install.

    • On a 64bit Windows installation, a 32bit install will place files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Stubby. All other installs place files in C:\Program Files\Stubby.

  • This release corrects the default configuration file location to C:\Program Files\Stubby\stubby.yml. This path no longer needs to be specified on the command line.
  • stubby.bat has been updated to look for the configuration file in the same directory as the Stubby executable.

    • stubby.xml

    • stubby.batstubby.xml

Configuration

It is recommended to use the default configuration file provided which will use 'Strict' privacy mode and spread the DNS queries among several of the current DNS Privacy test servers. Note that this file contains both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. It installed in "C:\Program Files\Stubby\stubby.yml"

...

> "C:\Program Files\Stubby\stubby.exe" -C "C:\Program Files\Stubby\stubby.yml" -l

The -l flag enables full logging. Alternatively a specific logging level can be controlled by using the -v flag (run '"C:\Program Files\Stubby\stubby.exe" - h'  for details of available levels).

...

  • C:\Program Files\Stubby\stubby_setdns_windows7.ps1 and
  • C:\Program Files\Stubby\stubby_resetdns_windows7.ps1

    Warning

    WARNING: These scripts can only update DNS servers on the IPv4 service. IPv6 will still use the default DNS servers, sending queries in clear text so one option is to disable IPv6, the other is to manually update the IPv6 addessses (see below).

Install Stubby as Windows service

See this README.md for details.

Create a Scheduled Task

If you want Stubby to always start when you boot your system, you can create a Scheduled task for this. A template for the task is provided.
