A new release of the high-performance authoritative DNS server KnotDNS 2.7.0 has been released. Among its main features - multi-threaded and well-scalable on SMP-systems implementation. There are also the ability to add and remove zones 'on the fly', transfer them between servers, the DDNS service, EDNS0 and DNSSEC extensions.

New features:

  • New DNS Cookies module and related '+cookie' kdig option
  • New module for response tailoring according to client's subnet or geographic location
  • General EDNS Client Subnet support in the server
  • OSS-Fuzz integration (Thanks to Jonathan Foote)
  • New '+ednsopt' kdig option (Thanks to Jan Včelák)
  • Online Signing support for automatic key rollover
  • Non-normal file (e.g. pipe) loading support in zscanner #542
  • Automatic SOA serial incrementation if non-empty zone difference
  • New zone file load option for ignoring zone file's SOA serial
  • New build-time option for alternative malloc specification
  • Structured logging for DNSSEC key submission event
  • Empty QNAME support in kdig
  • Various library and server optimizations
  • Reduced memory consumption of outgoing IXFR processing
  • Linux capabilities use overhaul #546 (Thanks to Robert Edmonds)
  • Online Signing properly signs delegations and CNAME records
  • CDS/CDNSKEY rrset is signed with KSK instead of ZSK
  • DNSSEC-related records are ignored when loading zone difference with signing enabled
  • Minimum allowed RSA key length was increased to 1024
  • Removed explicit dependency on Nettle

In April 2018 Cloudflare launched 1.1.1.1: the fastest DNS server. The company focuses on user security and promises to erase all DNS query logs after 24 hours.

The release of the pplication for managing the build process of software using a compiler-independent method CMake 3.14, acting as an alternative to Autotools and used in projects such as KDE, LLVM / Clang, MySQL, MariaDB, ReactOS and Blender. CMake code is written in C ++ and is distributed under the BSD license.

CMake is notable for providing simple scripting language, tools for extending functionality through modules, a minimum number of dependencies (no binding to M4, Perl or Python), support for caching, the availability of tools for cross-compiling, support for generating assembly files for a wide range of build systems and compilers, the ctest and cpack utilities for defining test scripts and package building, with the cmake-gui utility for interactively setting build parameters.
