today we released the first Beta release for Authoritative Server 4.7.0,
even though it is called beta2. (beta1 was never released because of bugs
found during the release process).
4.7.0 brings support for Catalog Zones, developed by Kees
Monshouwer. As part of that development, the freshness checks in the
Primary code were reworked, reducing them from doing potentially
thousands of SQL queries (if you have thousands of domains) to only a
few. Installations with lots of domains will benefit greatly from this,
even without using catalog zones.
4.7.0 also brings back GSS-TSIG support, previously removed for quality
reasons, now reworked with many stability improvements.
Other things of note:
* LUA records, when queried over TCP, can now re-use a Lua state,
giving a serious performance boost.
* lmdbbackend databases now get a UUID assigned, making it easy for
external software to spot if a database was completely replaced
* lmdbbackend databases now optionally use random IDs for objects
* a new LUA function called ifurlextup, and improvements in other LUA
* autoprimary management in pdnsutil and the HTTP API
A full list of changes can be found in the changelog.
