dnsdist 1.5.2 released

May 10, 2021


We are happy to release dnsdist 1.5.2 today, a maintenance release fixing a few bugs reported since 1.5.1:

  • A typo in prometheus metrics dnsdist_frontend_tlshandshakefailures #9728 (AppliedPrivacy)
  • A hang when removing a server with more than one socket
  • SNI availability on resumed sessions, by acknowledging the name sent by the client
  • A crash when a DoH responses map is updated at runtime
  • Dynamic Block RCode rules messing up the queries count
  • EDNS in ServFail generated when no server is available
  • A crash with DynBPF objects in client mode
  • Add missing getEDNSOptions and getDO bindings for DNSResponse

As usual there were also other smaller enhancements and fixes, please see the dnsdist website for the more complete changelog and the current documentation.

Please send us all feedback and issues you might have via the mailing list, or in case of a bug, via GitHub.

We are grateful to the PowerDNS community for the reporting of bugs, issues, feature requests, and especially to the submitters of fixes and implementations of features.

The release tarball (signature) is available on the downloads website, and packages for CentOS 7 and 8, Debian Buster and Ubuntu Bionic and Focal are available from our repository.
