Much thanks to Christof who pointed out the upper-case.

My original configuration contained dontAGE=false. After correcting it to dontAge=false the error cleared. Oddly I did not have this issue with previous versions.

Subject: [dnsdist] DNSDIST 1.8.0 With Cache Enabled Unknown key 'dontAGE'

Has anyone noticed this error when accessing the DNSDIST console (it's also shows up in /var/log/messages) on Red Hat 8?

     newPacketCache: Unknown key 'dontAGE' given - ignored

It seems the dontAGE parameter is not recognized in 1.8.0. This parameter is listed in the example on https://dnsdist.org/guides/cache.html<https://secure-web.cisco.com/1SUclwrojE6m1qKajn1uXYL3hSfOx0IarDIQZOrpnezmHHGiPGaGogxYwMIfNUYMGDQcAyzzPuoIAjfrYVogPqpOEk2GRr_Zq2L0L9hm07ZzswcZuiQCsGYXfGltO2h52lpStx2pkhQwe2RiQhuq2UgHDeMeqC6R-fKp7AoaCpvmohUsD9oez15ykk_2UWflrYXwycxPIWlD3nxSMONAaHxC3eW_VewmcwKM_VBtmC6vzjmfxGvznkqq9F5FXyetOzA-fLxUpE4JFJTKmYk1oCvsE2RER2RC-XZsQa5bFMefoJ0SwS1RlCVHkCgF927Ut/https%3A%2F%2Fdnsdist.org%2Fguides%2Fcache.html> and I did not see any references to it being removed/renamed in the change notes.

As a workaround, I removed "dontAge=false" from my configuration. Is this option no longer supported in 1.8.0 or is this a bug?
