I plan on releasing the first alpha release of 1.7.0 very soon, 
hopefully next week, and it's very likely we will release 1.6.1 just 
after that.

Note that the fix has already been backported to the rel/dnsdist-1.6.x 
branch and we automatically build packages from that branch so in the 
meantime you could use these. Look for 1.6.0.* directories under [1], 
like [2]. These directories contain bzipped tarballs that themselves 
contain the packages you are looking for.

These packages, while technically not a released version, are currently 
1.6.0 plus three fixes [3][4][5], so it should be pretty safe to run in

[5]: https://github.com/PowerDNS/pdns/pull/10619

Hope that helps,
