PowerDNS Authoritative Server 3.4.8

Feb 3, 2016

Hi everybody,

We’re pleased to announce version 3.4.8 of our Authoritative Server.

This is a small bugfix release to 3.4.7. Additionally, the deb/RPM packages on downloads.powerdns.com (those with -static in the name) for 3.4.8 have been built against Botan 1.10.11 instead of Botan 1.10.3 like previous packages. Please see the Botan Security page for more information on the fixes in Botan 1.10.11. As a PowerDNS user, these issues only affect you if you ran our -static packages *and* allowed your users to upload private keys to your configuration.

Tar.gz and packages are available on:

Warning: Version 3.4.8 of the PowerDNS Authoritative Server is a major upgrade if you are coming from 2.9.x. Additionally, if you are coming from any 3.x version (including 3.3.1), there is a mandatory SQL schema upgrade. Please refer to the Upgrade documentation for important information on correct and stable operation, as well as notes on performance and memory use.

Find the downloads on our download page, https://www.powerdns.com/downloads.html
