Release Notes: This version brings a reasonable amount of new features, combined with vast performance increases for large setups. In addition, significant numbers of bugs and issues have been addressed. This is a much recommended upgrade.
Release Notes: Compared to 2.9.21, this version offers a massive performance boost for installations running with high cache-TTLs or a large packet cache, in many cases of an order of magnitude. Additionally, a large number of bugs were addressed, some features were added, and overall many areas saw improvements. RC2 fixes important issues compared to RC1.

Release Notes: This release fixes many issues, unifies the PowerDNS Recursor and Authoritative DNS infrastructure (reducing code size by 2,000 lines), significantly improves the "BIND" compatibility mode (making real life zone loading up to 30 times faster than the original BIND), addresses many corner cases, reworks the TCP backend for improved stability, and makes 64 bit packages available.
Release Notes: This release adds a contributed OpenDBX backend with high-end features like failover and load balancing. An order of magnitude speed increase in the recursor was attained by properly indexing the caches for cleanup and optimizing many operations. Several major bugs were fixed, including some that could make two common forms of in-addr.arpa delegations fail. Upgrading is highly recommended.
Release Notes: Incoming AXFR interoperability with several nameservers has been restored. Improvements have been incorporated to allow PowerDNS to serve 49% of domains in one of the largest DNS zones. The BIND compatibility backend has been improved in terms of quality, speed, and memory use, surpassing the original. DNSSEC record types are now supported. The recursor has been ported to the new packet/zone-parsing/generating code, which adds EDNS0, allowing for larger UDP responses. Root-referral responses have been implemented to quiet older non-compliant nameservers.
Release Notes: This version is the result of over 1 million domains being moved to PowerDNS, and the bugfixing fallout of that process. Many large-scale issues have been addressed, and lot of corner cases have been fixed. Additionally, it is now possible to modify the version reporting, or even hide it completely.
Release Notes: After the 2.9.14 release, some nasty bugs appeared. This version makes logging work, allows LDAP to compile again, and fixes stability problems in the recursor. It improves statistics on the new "fastest nameserver selection" code. Some dependencies that are no longer needed have been removed. You can now pipe the output of "dig" directly into zone2sql.
Release Notes: This release fixes a rare 2^30 seconds bug causing master/slave support to fail. A major improvement is that the PDNS recursor now chooses the fastest nameserver, which has caused a benchmark to double in speed. There is more LDAP work, and logging works as expected again. This is a recommended upgrade.
Release Notes: This release brings behaviour with respect to AXFR access control in line with the documentation. Furthermore, the LDAP backend was upgraded to support zone transfers. Compilation problems on Solaris have been fixed, as well as several stray debugging messages interfering with pdns_control. The recursor now frees memory for expired cache entries.
