getdns-1.5.1 release



Packaging status

Dear all,

The previous release had a bug which prevented it from building on MacOS. This release has (almost) only this single bug fixed.

Also, some new configurable properties for DNS-over-TLS were introduced in the previous release, but these properties were not exposed in stubby.yml.example. This release includes Stubby 0.2.5, which does have example configuration for these properties in stubby.yml.example.

Google recently announced DNS-over-TLS support on the Google public DNS resolvers. Example configuration entries for DNS-over-TLS with Google public DNS are added to stubby.yml.example too.

* 2018-12-21: Version 1.5.0

    upstreams (because they reached tls_backoff_time) at
    log level 4 (WARNING)

  * getdns_query queries for addresses when a query name
    without a type is given.
  * RFE #408: Fetching of trust anchors will be retried
    after failure, after a certain backoff time. The time
    can be configured with

    verification.  When this extension is set, Indeterminate
    DNSSEC status will not be returned.
  * Issue #410: Unspecified ownership of get_api_information()
  * Fix for DNSSEC bug in finding most specific key when
    trust anchor proves non-existance of one of the labels
    along the authentication chain other than the non-
    existance of a DS record on a zonecut.
  * Enhancement getdnsapi/stubby#56 & getdnsapi/stubby#130:
    Configurable minimum and maximum TLS versions with
    getdns_context_set_tls_min_version() and
    getdns_context_set_tls_max_version() functions and
    tls_min_version and tls_max_version configuration parameters
    for upstreams.
  * Configurable TLS1.3 ciphersuites with the
    getdns_context_set_tls_ciphersuites() function and
    tls_ciphersuites config parameter for upstreams.
  * Bugfix in upstream string configurations: tls_cipher_list and
  * Bugfix finding signer for validating NSEC and NSEC3s, which
    caused trouble with the partly tracing DNSSEC from the root
    up, introduced in 1.4.2.  Thanks Philip Homburg
