Hi everybody,

We're pleased to announce version 3.4.8 of our Authoritative Server.

This is a small bugfix release to 3.4.7. Additionally, the deb/RPM packages on
downloads.powerdns.com (those with -static in the name) for 3.4.8 have been
built against Botan 1.10.11 instead of Botan 1.10.3 like previous packages.
Please see [the Botan Security page](http://botan.randombit.net/security.html)
for more information on the fixes in Botan 1.10.11. As a PowerDNS user, these
issues only affect you if you ran our -static packages *and* allowed your
users to upload private keys to your configuration.

Tar.gz and packages are available on:

* https://downloads.powerdns.com/releases/
* Soon: https://www.monshouwer.eu/download/3rd_party/pdns/
   (RHEL/CentOS, with the usual huge thanks to Kees Monshouwer).

Warning: Version 3.4.8 of the PowerDNS Authoritative Server is a major upgrade
if you are coming from 2.9.x. Additionally, if you are coming from any 3.x
version (including 3.3.1), there is a mandatory SQL schema upgrade. Please
refer to the Upgrade documentation for important information on correct and
stable operation, as well as notes on performance and memory use.
