   We are proud to announce the release of PowerDNS Recursor 4.4.4. and
   4.5.2. Both releases contain mostly smaller bug fixes. For the 4.5.2
   release the default value of nsec3-max-iterations[1] has been lowered
   to 150, in accordance with new guidelines[2] and in coordination with
   other vendors. Furthermore, an issue affecting the "refresh almost
   expired[3]" function has been fixed.

   Please refer to the change logs for the 4.4.4[4] and 4.5.2[5] release
   for additional details.

   Please send us all feedback and issues you might have via the mailing
   list[6], or in case of a bug, via GitHub[7].

   The tarballs (4.4.4[8], 4.5.2[9]) and signatures (4.4.4[10], 4.5.2[11])
   are available from our download server[12] and packages for several
   distributions are available from our repository[13].

   With the previous 4.5.1 release, the 4.2.x releases will be EOL and the
   4.3.x and 4.4.x releases will go into critical fixes only mode. Consult
   the EOL policy[14] for more details.

   We would also like to announce that with this release we will stop
   supporting systems using 32-bit time. This includes 32-bit Linux
   platforms like arm6, arm7, and i386.

   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.
