Hi Michael

Sorry for being not precise enough:

Bert Hubert is the author and maintainer of the PowerDNS server and only he 
can release new versions of PowerDNS itself.

The opendbxbackend is a backend I maintain for the PowerDNS server to connect 
to databases supported by the OpenDBX library. I've released new versions for 
both, the opendbxbackend and the OpenDBX library and SuSE Linux/MS SQL is a 
supported combination even if I didn't tested this specifically.
