Hi everybody,

We are very proud to be able to report that PowerDNS is now powering over
165000 DNSSEC zones in Sweden.

The official press release is here:
(and yes, the title is not quite correct).

Binero of Sweden, together with Atomia, have signed more than 10% of all
Swedish domain names using PowerDNS, which also means that 97+% of all
Swedish DNSSEC domains (with a DS in .se) are now powered by PowerDNS!

More technical details can be found at:

The impressive graphs reflecting this process can be found on:
https://www.iis.se/en/domaner/statistik/tillvaxt?chart=per-type (scroll down
to 'DNSSEC signed domains')

In the course of the migration Atomia and Binero have fixed or found several
PowerDNS bugs, and we are grateful for their trust in PowerDNS and the
contributions they have made.

This giant deployment means that PowerDNSSEC is now truly ready for prime
time. The bugs that have been found however mean that other large
deployments might want to wait for the upcoming 3.1 release, or use snapshot
20111215.2321 (available from http://powerdnssec.org).

For more information about this migration, or of you want to know more about
how to attempt large scale DNSSEC operations, please feel free to contact us
on powerdns.support at netherlabs.nl and we will be glad to help!

Kind regards,
