Changelogs for 4.4.x

4.4.0-alpha1

Released: 30th of September 2020

This is version 4.4.0-alpha1 of the Authoritative Server. This release drops GSS/TSIG support, please see PowerDNS Security Advisory 2020-06.

Version 4.4.0 brings a bunch of exciting changes:

  • the LMDB backend now supports long record content, making it production ready for everybody
  • the SVCB and HTTPS record types are supported, with limited additional processing
  • transaction handling in the 2136 handler and the HTTP API was again improved a lot, avoiding various spurious issues users may have noticed if they do a lot of changes
  • we finally emit Prometheus metrics!

We want to specifically thank Robin Geuze, Kees Monshouwer, Mischan Toosarani-Hausberger, and Chris Hofstaedtler for their contributions to this release. We are also grateful to all other reporters of bugs, issues, feature requests, and submitters of smaller fixes and features.

Please make sure to read the upgrade notes before upgrading.
