Dear all,

We have a first release candidate for the upcoming 1.4.2 bugfix release
of getdns. The two major bugfixes are:

  * DNSSEC Denial of Existence validation at NSEC wildcards, which was
    broken since 1.4.0.

  * Null termination of strings in configuration dictionaries. This in
    particular affected Stubby configurations with settings for
    `trust_anchors_url`, `trust_anchors_verify_CA`,
    `trust_anchors_verify_email`, `appdata_dir`, `resolvconf`, `hosts`,
    `tls_ca_path`, `tls_ca_file`, `tls_cipher_list` and

    If you use Stubby and had one of these configured, but they did not
    affect Stubby operation as expected, retry with this release
    candidate to see if it resolves the issue.

DNSSEC validation in stub mode has been improved and should be possible
more often now (also with badly behaving authoritatives), because it is
now partly traced from the root up.

This release has a release candidate for Stubby 0.2.3 included, with:

  * An updated stubby.yml file
    NOTE! The entries for securedns.eu have changed!

  * Better recommendations for running Stubby with systemd

  * No pass through of ENDS0 options that were handled by underlying

Please review these release candidates carefully, if all is well, the
actual release will follow Friday the 11th of May.
