PowerDNS Releases Version 3.2 With Increased DNSSEC Support

By Dan YorkDirector, Online Content

Congratulations to Bert Hubert and the rest of the team at PowerDNS for their release 3.2 last Thursday that, if you scroll down through the release announcement and changelog is pretty much mostly about improvements to their already strong DNSSEC support!  The list of changes and improvements is rather impressive.

In speaking with Bert last week, he said the team there views DNSSEC as basically “done” now for the authoritative server end and is now moving to focus on what they can do to make DNSSEC easier for deployment in DNS resolvers.  We’re looking forward to seeing what the team does there.

Meanwhile, if you are a PowerDNS user, the new release will give you even more DNSSEC power… time to upgrade!
