PowerDNS Authoritative Server 4.2.0 Beta 1 Released

It has been too long a time since the release of PowerDNS Authoritative Server 4.2.0-alpha1.  The Beta 1 release comes with a lot of bug fixes, improvements and also some new features:

  • LMDB backend,
  • Fixes for OpenBSD and Sparc64 courtesy of Otto Moerbeek,
  • A lowering of the UDP truncation limit from 1680 to 1232 bytes (this is the largest number of payload bytes that can fit in the smallest IPv6 packet).

Please see our earlier Authoritative Server 4.2.0-alpha1 blog post for more information on the 4.2.x release train and the extensive changelog for details.

This release was made possible by contributions from: Aki Tuomi, Josh Soref, Klaus Darilion, Kees Monshouwer, Matt Nordhoff, Ruben Kerkhof, spirillen, Chris HofstaedtlerBaptiste Courtois, @alebeta90, Chris Boot, Hannu Ylitalo, @jonathaneen, Robin Mulder, Thomas DU BOYS, @mimianddaniel and Donatas.

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