We are proud to announce the release of PowerDNS Recursor 4.8.3
This release is a maintenance release. The most important fixes concern the serve-stale functionality which could cause intermittent high CPU load. The serve-stale function is disabled by default.
Please refer to the change log for the 4.8.3 release for additional details.
Please send us all feedback and issues you might have via the mailing list, or in case of a bug, via GitHub.
The tarball and signature are available from our download server and packages for several distributions are available from our repository. The Ubuntu Jammy package will be published soon.
The 4.5.x releases are EOL and the 4.6.x and 4.7.x releases are in critical fixes only mode. Consult the EOL policy for more details.
We would also like to repeat that starting with the 4.5 release branch we stopped supporting systems using 32-bit time. This includes most 32-bit Linux platforms.
We are grateful to the PowerDNS community for the reporting of bugs, issues, feature requests, and especially to the submitters of fixes and implementations of features.
