dnsdist 1.6.1 released

Sep 15, 2021


We are happy to release dnsdist 1.6.1 today, a maintenance release fixing a few bugs reported since 1.6.0:

  • Adding ECS failed for queries with records in the answer or additional section (Dimitrios Mavrommatis)
  • The transport was not properly set in dnstap and protobuf messages for DoH queries
  • The outstanding queries counter was not properly reset when some TCP I/O errors occurred
  • The ability to load a new certificate on a DoH frontend was missing
  • A missing header could have caused a compilation issue on some platforms

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 Bullseye, and Ubuntu Bionic and Focal are available from our repository.
