PowerDNS Recursor 4.9.7 and 5.0.7 Released

Jul 3, 2024

Today we have released PowerDNS Recursor 4.9.7 and 5.0.7.

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

  • Fix TCP case for policy tags to not produce cached tags in protobuf messages.
  • Remove potential double SOA records if the target of a dns64 name is NODATA.

There are also a few other bug fixes and improvements, please refer to the changelogs  (4.9.7 and 5.0.7) 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 (4.9.7, 5.0.7) (with signature files 4.9.7, 5.0.7) are available from our download server and packages for several distributions are available from our repository. These releases are missing packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and derivatives. We will try to publish them for the next maintenance releases, but also draw your attention to End of life announcement: Debian 10, EL7.

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.
