We are proud to announce the release of PowerDNS Recursor 4.5.4. This release contains a fix to an issue where the answer to a non-existent DS query was missing a SOA record. In particular this can be a problem if PowerDNS Recursor is used as a forwarding target by a validating client.
Due to an issue with the build system PowerDNS Recursor 4.5.3 was never released publicly.
Please refer to the change log for additional details.
With the earlier 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.
