PowerDNS Authoritative Server 4.1.0 Release Candidate 3 Available
We present what should be our last release candidate for PowerDNS Authoritative Server 4.1.0: Release Candidate 3!
If no major issues are found we expect to release the final version within the next two weeks.
Thanks to everyone who tested the previous release candidates.
This release features various bug fixes, some improvements to
pdnsutil, documentation improvements by Christian Hofstaedtler and logging message improvements by Job Snijders.
The Raspbian packages will follow Monday since the builder is still working on them.
The full changelog looks like this:
- #5917: Use
_exit()when we really really want to exit, for example after a fatal error. This stops us dying while we die. A call to
exit()will trigger destructors, which may paradoxically stop the process from exiting, taking down only one thread, but harming the rest of the process.
- #5884: Fix messages created by
- #5928: Add back missing output details to rectifyZone.
- #5905: Use 302 redirects in the webserver for ringbuffer reset or resize. With the current 301 redirect it is only possible to reset or resize once. Every next duplicate action is replaced by the destination cached in the browser.
The tarball is available on downloads.powerdns.com (signature) and packages for CentOS 6 and 7, Debian Jessie and Stretch, Ubuntu Artful, Trusty, Xenial and Zesty are available from repo.powerdns.com. (The Raspbian packages will come later, possibly Monday, because they are still building.)
We invite you to test this release candidate and send us all feedback and issues you might have via the mailinglist, or in case of a bug, via GitHub.
