Hi All,

As previously announced the dnsovertls*.sinodun.com servers are being retired and will be taken off-line at the end of this week (9th Sept). Our thanks go to Surfnet for hosting these servers for the project for many years!

The latest example Stubby config file at:
supplied with the 0.4.2 release contains updated configuration which has these servers removed and the getdnsapi.net server as the only default server. If you are not already using the latest config file, please update your config to remove the dnsovertls*.sinodun.com servers and we highly recommend that you add additional default servers. See the alternative servers provided in the latest config file and also details at https://dnsprivacy.org/public_resolvers and https://dnsprivacy.org/test_servers

Best regards

> We have a new 1.7.2 quickfix release of getdns. Version 1.7.1. contained a version of Stubby that would fail to start with config files missing the new log_level setting. The version 0.4.2 of Stubby included in this version has this resolved. Compared to version 1.7.0 and Stubby version 0.4.0 this is mostly a bugfix release with most prominently a fix for a crash that occured when looking up and DNSSEC validating certain RR types.

> NOTE! The dnsovertls*.sinodun.com servers will retire later this month so we strongly encourage you to update the config file with the new default upstream servers and choose (uncomment) some additional servers from the list available. The getdnsapi.net server is the only default resolver left and is a single point of failure in your setup if no other resolvers are chosen.
