On October 24, 2017, the IPv4 IP for b.root-servers.net was changed. I
have updated Deadwood with the new IP. In addition, for anyone using a
dwood3rc file with the root servers set in it, the IP
needs to be replaced with

A dwood3rc file for Deadwood sometimes has a section looking like this:

root_servers = {}
root_servers["."]+=",,, "
root_servers["."]+=",,, "

If so, make sure the out of date IP is replaced, like
it is above.

The deadwood configuration file is usually located at /etc/dwood3rc

I have updated the Deadwood source to use the updated IP, and have
updated the list of root servers everywhere the out of date IP was in
the documentation.

I plan on making a release of MaraDNS in 2018 with this update. Until
then, both the GitHub repo at https://github.com/samboy/MaraDNS and
the Deadwood snapshot at http://maradns.samiam.org/deadwood/snap have
this change.
