3.5.3 is the best version of the PowerDNS Recursor currently available, and we
recommend upgrading to it.
Here is a text-only version:
This is a bugfix and performance update to 3.5.2. It brings serious performance
improvements for dual stack users.
Changes since 3.5.2:
* 3.5 replaced our ANY query with A+AAAA for users with IPv6 enabled.
Extensive measurements by Darren Gamble showed that this change had a
non-trivial performance impact. We now do the ANY query like before, but
fall back to the individual A+AAAA queries when necessary. Change in commit
* The IPv6 address for d.root-servers.net was added in commit 66cf384, thanks
Ralf van der Enden.
* We now drop packets with a non-zero opcode (i.e. special packets like DNS
UPDATE) earlier on. If the experimental pdns-distributes-queries flag is
enabled, this fix avoids a crash. Normal setups were never susceptible to
this crash. Code in commit 35bc40d, closes ticket 945.
* TXT handling was somewhat improved in commit 4b57460, closing ticket 795.
