That is not correct - the Resolver has seen heaps of releases over that
time. I'm pleased to announce that EasyDNS (www.easydns.com) is sponsoring
new features that will shortly lead to the release of the authoritative
version 2.9.21 of PowerDNS.

We are not aware of relevant security issues. Also, over the last year, many
big DNS hosters have moved to PowerDNS. 

So I wouldn't worry, but please test the 2.9.21 snapshots once they become
