Authoritative Server Database Schema Changes

Apr 10, 2014

A heads-up for everybody running (git) snapshots of the PowerDNS Authoritative Server: earlier today we merged Pull #1327 from Kees Monshouwer.

This merge deprecates the ‘old’ (pre-DNSSEC) schema for the gsql backends. In other words, from this point on, the new schema is mandatory. This simplifies documentation and debugging, and also makes development easier on our end.

Please read the upgrade notes carefully to see what changes need to be applied to your database!
