PowerDNS Recursor 4.8.9, 4.9.6 and 5.0.5 Released

May 14, 2024

Today we have released PowerDNS Recursor 4.8.9, 4.9.6 and 5.0.5.

These releases are maintenance releases that fix a few bugs. The most important ones are:

  • Two cases of counting towards limits related to DNSSEC validation have been fixed.

  • When using YAML settings only: the type of the incoming.edns_padding_from and incoming.proxy_protocol_from has been changed from "String" to "Sequence of Subnet". This applies to version 5.0.5 only.

There are also a few other bug fixes and improvements, please refer to the changelogs  (4.8.9, 4.9.6 and 5.0.5) 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 tarballs (4.8.9, 4.9.6, 5.0.5) (with signature files 4.8.9, 4.9.6, 5.0.5) are available from our download server and packages for several distributions are available from our repository.

Recently we made changes to our Open Source End of Life policy. Older release trains are now supported for one year after the following major release. Consult the EOL policy for more details.

We would also like to mention that with the 4.5 release we stopped supporting systems using 32-bit time. This includes many 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.
