PowerDNS Recursor 4.1.4 released

Aug 31, 2018

We’ve just released PowerDNS Recursor version 4.1.4, this is a maintenance release with no major changes.

One new setting was added, this is the max-udp-queries-per-round, which controls the maximum amount of messages the Recursor will handle before other mthreads are scheduled. Its default should be high enough for nearly all users.

The changelog looks as follows:


  • #6436: Split pdns_enable_unit_tests. (Chris Hofstaedtler)
  • #6518: Add a new max-udp-queries-per-round setting.
  • #6590: Fix warnings reported by gcc 8.1.0.
  • #6809: Tests: replace awk command by perl.
  • #6720: Allow the snmp thread to retrieve statistics.

Bug Fixes

  • #6462, #6465: Don’t account chained queries more than once.
  • #6536, #6557: Make rec_control respect include-dir.
  • #6567, #6812: Load lua scripts only in worker threads.
  • #6873: Purge all auth/forward zone data including subtree. (@phonedph1)

The source tarball is available from downloads.powerdns.com (sig) and packages for Centos 6 and 7, Ubuntu Xenial, Trusty and Bionic and Debian Jessie and Stretch are available from our repositories.
