What is the current status of DNS proxying on the SRX?
In this thread, billp (Product Line Engineer @ Juniper) says 'Not yet' implying that it is coming in a future JUNOS release, but in another earlier thread (SRX and DNS Name Server) someone asked JTAC and they said there are "no plans to bring back DNS forwarding."
Is it "on the roadmap" for the SRX platform?
If so, when may it be available?

I'm sorry we cannot commit to a particular release (unfortunately there are legal issues with making any statemets of the sort). All I can say is that the feature has been developed (including support for dns proxy and split dns) and it is currently being tested (so hopefully it will make it).
JTAC is incorrect if they stated that we have no plans to bring that feature into Junos (in fact the infrastructure is already there, you can configure forwarders but unfortunately at this time we only listen on the loopback interface).
