We are proud to announce the release of PowerDNS Recursor 4.4.4. and 4.5.2. Both releases contain mostly smaller bug fixes. For the 4.5.2 release the default value of nsec3-max-iterations has been lowered to 150, in accordance with new guidelines and in coordination with other vendors. Furthermore, an issue affecting the “refresh almost expired” function has been fixed.
With the previous 4.5.1 release, the 4.2.x releases will be EOL and the 4.3.x and 4.4.x releases will go into critical fixes only mode. Consult the EOL policy for more details.
We would also like to announce that with this release we will stop supporting systems using 32-bit time. This includes 32-bit Linux platforms like arm6, arm7, and i386.
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.
