  • More updates to the set of block lists, thanks again to IceCodeNew.
  • Netprobes and listening sockets are now ignored when the -list, -list-all, -show-certs or -check command-line switches are used.
  • tls_client_auth was renamed to doh_client_x509_auth. A section with the previous name is temporarily ignored if empty, but will error out if not.
  • Unit tests are now working on 32-bit systems. Thanks to Will Elwood and @lifenjoiner.

  • Built-in support for DNS64 translation has been implemented. (Contributed by Sergey Smirnov, thanks!)
  • Connections to DoH servers can be authenticated using TLS client certificates (Contributed by Kevin O'Sullivan, thanks!)
  • Multiple stamps are now allowed for a single server in resolvers and relays lists.
  • Android: the time zone for log files is now set to the system time zone.
  • Quite a lot of updates and additions have been made to the example domain block lists. Thanks to IceCodeNew!
  • Cached configuration files can now be temporarily used if they are out of date, but bootstraping is impossible. Contributed by lifenjoiner, thanks!
  • Precompiled macOS binaries are now notarized.
  • generate-domains-blacklists now tries to deduplicate entries clobbered by wildcard rules. Thanks to Huhni!
  • generate-domains-blacklists can now directly write lists to a file with the -o command-line option.
  • cache files are now downloaded as the user the daemon will be running as. This fixes permission issues at startup time.
  • Forwarded queries are now subject to global timeouts, and can be forced to use TCP.
  • The ct parameter has been removed from DoH queries, as Google doesn't require it any more.
  • Service installation is now supported on FreeBSD.
  • When stored into a file, service logs now only contain data from the most recent launch. This can be changed with the new log_file_latest option.
  • Breaking change: the tls_client_auth section was renamed to doh_client_x509_auth. If you had a tls_client_auth section in the configuration file, it needs to be updated.

  • The current versions of the dnsdist load balancer (presumably used by quad9, cleanbrowsing, qualityology, freetsa.org, ffmuc.net, opennic-bongobow, sth-dnscrypt-se, ams-dnscrypt-nl and more) is preventing queries over 1500 bytes from being received over UDP.
    Temporary workarounds have been introduced to improve reliability with these resolvers for regular DNSCrypt. Unfortunately, anonymized DNS cannot be reliable until the issue is fixed server-side.
    dnsdist authors are aware of it and are working on a fix already have a fix.
  • New option in the [anonymized_dns] section: skip_incompatible, to ignore resolvers incompatible with Anonymized DNS instead of using them without a relay.
  • The server latency benchmark is faster while being able to perform more retries if necessary.
  • Continuous integration has been moved to GitHub Actions.

  • Precompiled ARM binaries are compatible with armv5 CPUs. The default arm builds were not compatible with older CPUs when compiled with Go 1.14. mips64 binaries are explicitly compiled with softfloat to improve compatibility.
  • Quad9 seems to be only blocking fragmented queries over UDP for some networks. They have been removed from the default list of broken resolvers; runtime detection of support for fragments should now do the job.
  • Runtime detection of support for fragments was actually enabled.

  • Servers blocking fragmented queries are now automatically detected.
  • The server name is now only present in query logs when an actual upstream servers was required to resolve a query.
  • TLS client authentication has been added for DoH.
  • The Firefox plugin is now skipped for connections coming from the local DoH server.
  • DoH RTT computation is now more accurate, especially when CDNs are in the middle.
  • The forwarding plugin is now more reliable, and handles retries over TCP.

  • The Firefox Local DoH service didn't properly work in version 2.0.38;
    this has been fixed. Thanks to Simon Brand for the report!

  • Entries from lists (forwarding, blacklists, whitelists) now support inline comments.
  • Reliability improvement: queries over UDP are retried after a timeout instead of solely relying on the client.
  • Reliability improvement: during temporary network outages, cached records are now served even if they are stale.
  • Bug fix: SOCKS proxies and DNS relays can be combined.
  • New feature: multiple fallback resolvers are now supported (see the new fallback_resolvers option. Note that fallback_resolver is still supported for backward compatibility).
  • Windows: the service can be installed with a configuration file stored separately from the application.
  • Security (affecting DoH): precompiled binaries of dnscrypt-proxy 2.0.37 are built using Go 1.13.7 that fixes a TLS certificate parsing issue present in previous versions of the compiler.

  • New option: block_undelegated. When enabled, dnscrypt-proxy will directly respond to queries for locally-served zones (https://sk.tl/2QqB971U) and nonexistent zones that should have been kept local, but are frequently leaked. This reduces latency and improves privacy.
  • Conformance: the DO bit is now set in synthetic responses if it was set in a question, and the AD bit is cleared.
  • The miegkg/dns module was updated to version 1.1.26, that fixes a security issue affecting non-encrypted/non-authenticated DNS traffic. In dnscrypt-proxy, this only affects the forwarding feature.

There have also been quite a bit of internal changes, so please report any possible regression!

  • New option: block_unqualified to block A/AAAA queries with unqualified host names. These will very rarely get an answer from upstream resolvers, but can leak private information to these, as well as to root servers.
  • When a CNAME pointer is blocked, the original query name is now logged along with the pointer. This makes it easier to know what the original query name, so it can be whitelisted, or what the pointer was, so it can be removed from the blacklist.
