Hi everybody,

With all the action currently focussed on the PowerDNS Recursor, currently
powering over 40 million internet connections (see
), there has been a steady stream of bugs reported against the main PowerDNS
authoritative server.

To address these issues, we are heading up to a release, but this is some
ways off. 

In the meantime, people facing PowerDNS crashes might want to check out
the snapshot release of the authoritative server available on:


These snapshot releases have not had any serious testing, but may be
interesting if you need to solve your current problems.

These packages also contain a build of the PowerDNS Recursor, but it has not
been compiled for performance, and will perform around 40% less than the
regular PowerDNS recursor releases.

Please let us know how this release works for you.
