================================

140 141
Incompatible changes
--------------------
142 143 144 145 146 147 148
- cache: fail lua operations if cache isn't open yet (!639)
  By default cache is opened *after* reading the configuration,
  and older versions were silently ignoring cache operations.
  Valid configuration must open cache using `cache.open()` or `cache.size =`
  before executing cache operations like `cache.clear()`.
- libknot >= 2.7.1 is required, which brings also larger API changes
- in case you wrote custom Lua modules, please consult

150 151 152 153 154 155 156 157 158 159 160
- in case you wrote custom C modules, please see compile against
  Knot DNS 2.7 and adjust your module according to messages from C compiler
- DNS cookie module (RFC 7873) is not available in this release,
  it will be later reworked to reflect development in IEFT dnsop working group
- version module was permanently removed because it was not really used by users;
  if you want to receive notifications abou new releases please subscribe to

--------------------
- systemd: change unit files to allow running multiple instances,

- systemd: the directory for cache is now /var/cache/knot-resolver
- unify default directory and user to `knot-resolver`
- directory with trust anchor file specified by -k option must be writeable
- policy module is now loaded by default to enforce RFC 6761;
  see documentation for policy.PASS if you use locally-served DNS zones
- drop support for alternative cache backends memcached, redis,
  and for Lua bindings for some specific cache operations
- REORDER_RR option is not implemented (temporarily)

New features
------------
- aggressive caching of validated records (RFC 8198) for NSEC zones;
  thanks to ICANN for sponsoring this work.
- forwarding over TLS, authenticated by SPKI pin or certificate.
  policy.TLS_FORWARD pipelines queries out-of-order over shared TLS connection
  Beware: Some resolvers do not support out-of-order query processing.
  TLS forwarding to such resolvers will lead to slower resolution or failures.
- trust anchors: you may specify a read-only file via -K or --keyfile-ro
- trust anchors: at build-time you may set KEYFILE_DEFAULT (read-only)
- ta_sentinel module implements draft ietf-dnsop-kskroll-sentinel-00,
  enabled by default
- serve_stale module is prototype, subject to change
- extended API for Lua modules

Knot Resolver 1.99.1-alpha (2017-10-26)
=======================================
This is an experimental release meant for testing aggressive caching.
It contains some regressions and might (theoretically) be even vulnerable.
The current focus is to minimize queries into the root zone.

Improvements
------------
- negative answers from validated NSEC (NXDOMAIN, NODATA)
- verbose log is very chatty around cache operations (maybe too much)

Regressions
-----------
- dropped support for alternative cache backends
  and for some specific cache operations
- caching doesn't yet work for various cases:
    * negative answers without NSEC (i.e. with NSEC3 or insecure)
	* +cd queries (needs other internal changes)
	* positive wildcard answers
- spurious SERVFAIL on specific combinations of cached records, printing:
	<= bad keys, broken trust chain
- make check
- a few Deckard tests are broken, probably due to some problems above
429
- also unknown ones?

- lua: query flag-sets are no longer represented as plain integers.
439 440 441
  kres.query.* no longer works, and kr_query_t lost trivial methods

  You can instead write code like qry.flags.NO_0X20 = true.

Knot Resolver 1.3.2 (2017-07-28)
480 481
================================

482 483 484 485 486
Security
--------
- fix possible opportunities to use insecure data from cache as keys
  for validation

487 488 489
Bugfixes
--------
- daemon: check existence of config file even if rundir isn't specified
490
- policy.FORWARD and STUB: use RTT tracking to choose servers (#125, #208)
491
- dns64: fix CNAME problems (#203)  It still won't work with policy.STUB.

Knot Resolver 1.3.1 (2017-06-23)
503 504 505 506 507
================================

Bugfixes
--------
- modules/http: fix finding the static files (bug from 1.3.0)
508
- policy.FORWARD: fix some cases of CNAMEs obstructing search for zone cuts
509 510


511
Knot Resolver 1.3.0 (2017-06-13)
512 513 514 515 516 517 518 519 520
================================

Security
--------
- Refactor handling of AD flag and security status of resource records.
  In some cases it was possible for secure domains to get cached as
  insecure, even for a TLD, leading to disabled validation.
  It also fixes answering with non-authoritative data about nameservers.

521 522
Improvements
------------
523 524
- major feature: support for forwarding with validation (#112).
  The old policy.FORWARD action now does that; the previous non-validating
525
  mode is still available as policy.STUB except that also uses caching (#122).
526
- command line: specify ports via @ but still support # for compatibility
527
- policy: recognize 100.64.0.0/10 as local addresses
528 529
- layer/iterate: *do* retry repeatedly if REFUSED, as we can't yet easily
  retry with other NSs while avoiding retrying with those who REFUSED
530 531
- modules: allow changing the directory where modules are found,
  and do not search the default library path anymore.
532

533 534 535
Bugfixes
--------
- validate: fix insufficient caching for some cases (relatively rare)
536 537
- avoid putting "duplicate" record-sets into the answer (#198)

Knot Resolver 1.2.6 (2017-04-24)
================================

Security
--------
- dnssec: don't set AD flag for NODATA answers if wildcard non-existence
  is not guaranteed due to opt-out in NSEC3

Improvements
------------
- layer/iterate: don't retry repeatedly if REFUSED

Bugfixes
--------
- lib/nsrep: revert some changes to NS reputation tracking that caused
  severe problems to some users of 1.2.5 (#178 and #179)
- dnssec: fix verification of wildcarded non-singleton RRsets
- dnssec: allow wildcards located directly under the root
- layer/rrcache: avoid putting answer records into queries in some cases

Security
--------

  NSEC3 (#169)
- layer/validate: check if NSEC3 records in wildcard expansion proof

Knot Resolver 1.2.1 (2017-02-01)
====================================

Security:
---------
- Under certain conditions, a cached negative answer from a CD query
  would be reused to construct response for non-CD queries, resulting
  in Insecure status instead of Bogus.  Only 1.2.0 release was affected.

678
====================================
679 680 681

Security:
---------
682 683
- In a policy.FORWARD() mode, the AD flag was being always set by mistake.
  It is now cleared, as the policy.FORWARD() doesn't do DNSSEC validation yet.
684

685 686 687 688
Improvements:
-------------
- The DNSSEC Validation has been refactored, fixing many resolving
  failures.
689 690 691
- Add module `version` that checks for updates and CVEs periodically.
- Support RFC7830: EDNS(0) padding in responses over TLS.
- Support CD flag on incoming requests.
692 693
- hints module: previously /etc/hosts was loaded by default, but not anymore.
  Users can now actually avoid loading any file.
694 695 696
- DNS over TLS now creates ephemeral certs.
- Configurable cache.{min,max}_tll option, with max_ttl defaulting to 6 days.
- Option to reorder RRs in the response.
