Today we released the first Beta version for Authoritative Server
Version 4.6.0 mostly brings small improvements and fixes, but there are
two notable new features:
* support for incoming PROXY headers
* support for EDNS cookies
A note to downstream packagers: we removed the randombackend. You may
need to adjust your ./configure call and perhaps some file listings.
Support for PROXY headers allows you to put a load balancer (such as
dnsdist) in front of the Authoritative Server, while still having the
Auth see the actual IPs of clients talking to it.
EDNS Cookies allow resolvers that support it to have an extra layer of
authentication on their communication with the Authoritative Server.
Compared to 4.6.0-alpha1, the major user visible change is the new NSEC3PARAM settings - check the upgrade docs below for more information. Besides that, various bugs have been fixed.
A full list of changes can be found in the changelog.
Please make sure to read the Upgrade Notes before upgrading.
The tarball (signature) is available at
downloads.powerdns.com. Packages for various distributions are
available from repo.powerdns.com.
Please send us all feedback and issues you might have via
the mailing list, or in case of a bug, via GitHub.
