Hi all, 

For some time I'm hearing things about version 4.0 and I would like to know which version is the stable one. 
I have 3.4.7 for Auth and 3.7.3 for Recursors and I'm not sure from which it is safe to update to version 4.0.

I will go on production very soon and I would like to know which version do you advise me.

Thanks Ale.

Subject: [Pdns-users] New blogpost: per-device MAC address based DNS policies


We're blogging up some new and exciting PowerDNS 4.0.0 and dnsdist features.

Earlier we posted:

"In this post, we¿ll explain how to efficiently use the PowerDNS Recursor to optionally block certain domains for some or all of your users. This could be to stop users being tracked, to block advertisements or to protect against malware. The simple scripts below scale to millions of domain names and millions of users, all with acceptable startup times (seconds)."

Today we added:

"A problem however for other kinds of filtering is that subscribers typically share a single IP address among all their devices. This makes it hard to provide ¿parental control¿ to the kids¿ tablets, but not to other computers in the household ...
With the configuration outlined above, it is easily possible to provide per-device DNS filtering instructions for each subscriber"

We will be continuing this series until and beyond the 4.0.0 and dnsdist 1.0 releases. Let us know if there is a topic you'd like to see covered!
