Second release candidate for dnsdist 1.5.0

May 13, 2020

We are very happy to announce the second release candidate of dnsdist 1.5.0. 1.5.0 contains several new exciting features and a few breaking changes since 1.4.0 that were detailed in the announcement of alpha1. If you upgrade from 1.4.0, please see the upgrade guide for more information.
This new release candidate has very few changes except a few minor bug fixes and cleanups since the first release candidate:

  • compilation was broken on SmartOS/illumos, and Solaris (9031) ;
  • the statistics for HTTP/1 were displayed twice instead of showing the HTTP/2 ones (9068) ;
  • if a backend was not reachable when first added, and multiple sockets were configured for that backend, the corresponding socket was not properly closed (9057) ;
  • several minor compilation warnings were fixed, along with some minor cleanups (9016 9042 9053 9054 9059 9067 9078 9084).

We want to once again thank everyone that contributed to the testing of alpha1 and the first release candidate!

Please see the dnsdist website for the more complete changelog and the current documentation.

Release tarballs are available on the downloads website.

Several packages are also available in our repository. Please be aware that we have enabled a few additional features in our packages, like DNS over HTTPS, DNS over TLS and DNSTAP support, on distributions where the required dependencies were available.
