Today, we released version 4.7.0 of the authoritative DNS nameserver NSD.

This release adds a script for bash autocompletion for nsd-control. Also nsd-control can be configured to use unencrypted operation also when compiled without openssl. There is also a systemd service unit example file contributed. The dnstap log service can be contacted over TCP, with the dnstap-ip: ip option. It is also possible to use TLS, with dnstap-tls, it is enabled by default, and can be configured with the dnstap-server-name, dnstap-cert-bundle, dnstap-client-key-file and dnstap-client-cert-file options. The configure option --enable-root-server is obsolete, it is no longer used and defaults to on. In addition, the build file should support multicore build with flex and bison more easily.

You can get source packages of this version from the downloads page.
