PowerDNS Recursor 4.1.0-alpha1 released

Jul 18, 2017

We’re happy to release the first alpha version of the PowerDNS Recursor 4.1.0.

This release features all the improvements made to the 4.0 branch of the PowerDNS Recursor, as well as an improved DNSSEC validator that reduces CPU load by caching the validation status.

The Lua scripting engine has several new features, such as the possibility to see whether a query came in over tcp in gettag, and allowing dq.data to be returned from that same function.

For those running RPZ, support for wildcarded target names has been added, as well as an option to limit the TTL from the RPZ. To top this off, several performance improvements have been added.

The full changelog is here. As you may notice, the documentation has been split from the original shared documentation that existed before.

The tarball is available on downloads.powerdns.com (signature) and packages for CentOS 6 and 7, Debian Jessie and Stretch, Ubuntu Trusty, Yakkety, Xenial and Zesty are available from repo.powerdns.com.

We invite you to test this alpha and send us all feedback and issues you might have via the mailinglist, or in case of a bug, via GitHub.

Happy testing!
