This release fixes a few issues discovered since 1.5.0:
- the thread handling responses sent from a backend was not stopped when that backend was removed ;
getEDNSOptions()would throw an exception for queries with an empty additional section but records in the answer or authority sections ;
SetNegativeAndSOAActionwas incorrectly adding EDNS to self-generated responses when there was no EDNS in the query ;
- building with LLVM11 would generate an error.
It also adds a new command,
clearConsoleHistory(), to prevent setups issuing a very large number of console commands from consuming too much memory.
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.
