PowerDNS Recursor 4.8.2 Released

Jan 31, 2023
We are proud to announce the release of PowerDNS Recursor 4.8.2.

This release is a maintenance release, fixing some issues, in particular:

  • Record and negative cache cleaning now maintains balance between shards in a better way
  • A case where the wrong EDNS Client Subnet scope could be applied to outgoing queries has been fixed
  • A few other minor issues

Please refer to the change log for the 4.8.2 release for additional details.

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

The tarball and signature are available from our download server and packages for several distributions are available from our repository. The Ubuntu Jammy package will be published soon.

The 4.5.x releases are EOL and the 4.6.x and 4.7.x releases are in critical fixes only mode. Consult the EOL policy for more details.

We would also like to repeat that starting with the 4.5 release branch we stopped supporting systems using 32-bit time. This includes most 32-bit Linux platforms.

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.
