Name        : pdns-recursor
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 3.5.3
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : http://powerdns.com
Summary     : Modern, advanced and high performance recursing/non authoritative name server
Description :
PowerDNS Recursor is a non authoritative/recursing DNS server. Use this
package if you need a dns cache for your network.

Update Information:

Changes since 3.5.2:

- 3.5 replaced our ANY query with A+AAAA for users with IPv6 enabled. Extensive measurements by Darren Gamble showed that this change had a non-trivial performance impact. We now do the ANY query like before, but fall back to the individual A+AAAA queries when necessary. Change in commit 1147a8b.

- The IPv6 address for d.root-servers.net was added in commit 66cf384, thanks Ralf van der Enden.

- We now drop packets with a non-zero opcode (i.e. special packets like DNS UPDATE) earlier on. If the experimental pdns-distributes-queries flag is enabled, this fix avoids a crash. Normal setups were never susceptible to this crash. Code in commit 35bc40d, closes ticket 945.

- TXT handling was somewhat improved in commit 4b57460, closing ticket 795.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update pdns-recursor' at the command line.
