Hi list,

I've stumbled upon c-ares ( as a possible replacement for ADNS, which we currently have as async DNS resolver library.
Pro's: Still being developed, IPv6 support, multi-platform, MIT license.
Con's: May suffer from same memory allocation issues on Win32 as does ADNS.

Does anyone have further insights into the use of this library?
