4.6.1 (Upcoming)
- Fix static analyzer reports, fix wrong log print when skipping xfr,
fix to print error on pipe read fail, and assert an xfr is in
progress during packet checks.
- Use AC_PROG_CC_STDC with autoconf versions prior to 2.70.
- Add missing documentation for zone verification.
- Port zone-verification from CreDNS to NSD4.
- Fix static analyzer reports on ixfrcreate temp file.
- Fixup wrong ixfrcreate fread return check.
- Merge PR #209: IXFR out
This adds IXFR out functionality to NSD. NSD can copy IXFRs from
upstream to downstream clients, or create IXFRs from zonefiles.
The options store-ixfr: yes and create-ixfr: yes can be used to
turn this on. Default is turned off. The options ixfr-number and
ixfr-size can be used to tune the number of IXFR transfers and
total data size stored. This is configured per zone, the IXFRs
are served to the hosts that are allowed to perform zone transfers.
And if TSIG is configured, signed with the same key. The content
is stored to file if a zonefile is configured for the zone, in
the zonefile.ixfr and zonefile.ixfr.2, .. files. They contain
readable text format. The number of IXFRs is num.rixfr in
statistics output, also per zone if per zone statistics are enabled.
If offline, nsd-checkzone -i can create ixfr files.
NSD already supports requesting IXFRs, this addition allows NSD
to serve IXFR transfers to clients.
NSD stops responding with NOTIMPL to IXFR requests, also for zones
that do not have IXFR enabled. The clients gets a full zone reply
or a status reply if the serial is up to date.
- Fix code analyzer zero divide warning.

- Merge #193: Lower memory usage of the XFRD process by default.
Instead of preallocating all elements, they are allocated when used.
There are options for managing the memory usage, defaults are the
same as before. xfrd-tcp-max sets the number of sockets for tcp
connections that xfrd can make to download zone contents. And
xfrd-tcp-pipeline the number of simultaneous transfers over the
same connection.

4.0.0 NSD 4.0
- documented in doc/NSD-4-features. Change configuration without
restart, direct nameserver control with nsd-control, support a
higher number of zones. Higher performance (compared to NSD3).
- nsdc is gone. Use kill -HUP for reload (also checks if zonefiles
have changed and rereads them), and kill -TERM for quit. Or use
nsd-control for detailed control.
- cron job for nsdcpatch is gone. nsd-control write creates zonefiles.
- nsd.db has a new format that compacts itself when it is changed,
thus nsdc patch is no longer necessary.
- nsd.db is memory mapped, NSD needs (part of) that mmap in ram.
- tcp-count can go above 1000; epoll/kqueue support with libevent.
- nsd-control reconfig for updates with no restart (zones, keys, ..)
- nsd-control-setup to create keys for nsd-control (enable nsd-control
with remote-control: yes in nsd.conf).
- the NSD 3 feature of special zone stats are not ported to 4 yet,
as it would entail a complete reimplementation of the feature.
FEATURES (incremental from BETA5):
- configure --disable-recvmmsg for compat with older Linux kernels,
by default it autodetects support in the kernel on the buildmachine.
- Fix time at 2038, uint32s changed to time_t, support 64bit time_t.
- Fix use of 32bit time, for 2038, thanks to Theo de Raadt for patch.
BUG FIXES (incremental from BETA5):
- Bugfix #518 Incorrect RRL prefix length option names in nsd.conf
man page from Ville Mattila.
- Fix that xfrd, and nsd-control, does not stop responding when reload
errors out. The pid is sent like it should by server_main.
- Fix that EOF in quoted string error does not cause reload to exit.
- Fixup errors from the stack code checker.
- Removed use of random when arc4random is available. Thus, random
and srandom are then not linked with the executable.
- Fix segfault with no logfile and chroot (Thanks Patrik Lundin).
4.0.0b5 BETA 5 release of NSD 4.0
- Optimizations for startup, qps and tcp speed, beta bug fixes and
merge with code changes with NSD 3.2.16.
- nsd-mem tool (make nsd-mem) to estimate memory usage.
- Same as NSD 3.2.16: --enable-draft-rrtypes(EUI48, EUI64), rr-slip,
rrl-ipv[46]-prefix-length, ip-transparent config options.
- configure option --disable-flto.
- improved RRL logging (query details that caused blockage).
- nsd-control status prints out ratelimit if ratelimit is enabled.
- nsd-control verbosity prints out verbosity level without argument.
- Fix #491: pick program name (of executable) as syslog identity.
- printout percentage for long activities (to log). After about 5
seconds have passed.
- The same fixes up to NSD 3.2.16.
- Fix that old zonefile does not override newer AXFR for slave zones.
- Nicer printout of notify.
- Fix tcp zonetransfer pipeline lookup function.
- Fix compile on bigendian netbsd alpha.
- Fixup the growth and shrinkage of nsd.db. This should use less
calls to remap and change the file and mmap size.
- notify information is logged at correct verbosity level, 1.
- Fix memory statistics in nsd_munin_.
- faster nsec3 updates.
- Fixup contrib/bug390.patch for 4.0.0b4.
- remove leak of nsec3.
- allocate radixtree in region for small (5%) total savings and
about 15% savings in the radixtree itself (due to many small alloc
savings in region).
- Patch from Lukas Wunner that makes nsd.conf include files work
inside chroot/etc environments on repattern and reconfig.
- Fix race on exit of nsd, for restarts, so that the pidfile-pid
process waits until port53 has been closed before exiting.
- Patch from Lukas Wunner that makes chroot more consistent.
Make all paths absolute with the chrootdir in front, or use
an absolute zonesdir with other paths relative to that.
- Fix segfault on repeated reconfigs, double free of zone apex name.
- Fix zone parser allocations are put in the db region.
- Fix memory leak in zone parser for txt record.
- Optimizations: -O3 if possible (user can override CFLAGS), udp
buffers are set to 1m by default (if socket options exist),
use recvmmsg and sendmmsg, or only recvmmsg, or recvfrom.
- nsd.db 12% smaller, no nsec3 hash storage. Also ups udb version
because of the format change. The nsd.db is recreated when a
different version number is detected on startup.
- Fix region-allocator for speedup of load and change of large data.
- Increase tcpbacklog default to 256 (silently capped to 128 on BSD).
For remote control keep it at 16, it has less TCP load.
It does not actually increase TCP performance (some except), but
reduces connection loss when there is a spike in TCP connections.
- unlink xfr file if transfer is stopped, timeouted or interrupted.
And unlink xfr file in progress when the zone is deleted.
4.0.0b4 BETA 4 release of NSD 4.0
- remove -fwhole-program gcc flag usage. We cannot reliably detect
if it works without failure.
- fix zonefiles-check: entry in nsd.conf
- fix gcc warning, do not use uninit value for rng init.
- remove printout of "bad transfer" to the log for notimpl.
- printout log less verbosely, not every axfr packet.
- RRL documented in nsd.conf.sample
- Fix is_apex flag for zones read from udb.
- Fix that nsec3 zones are precompiled when read from udb. This
caused assertion failures.
- Less printout of 'bad transfer'.
- Fix AXFR of NSEC3 slave zone.
- Fix that old zonefile does not override newer AXFR for slave zones.
- Nicer printout of notify on verbosity 2.
4.0.0b3 BETA 3 release of NSD 4.0
- applied patch from Robin Hack to remove double pid file truncation.
- repattern is called reconfig (because most config options are
picked up, except for superuser options (chroot, logfile, port))

on sighup and startup (from Robin Hack).
- Fix spurious assertion failure for some rrl blocks.
- Tabs and spaces nicer in nsd.conf.sample.
- List libevent in README.
- Fix configure for gentoo gcc and headers.
- do-ip4 and do-ip6 nsd.conf options just like unbound.
- do not leave task files in /tmp if nsd fails to startup because
of file permissions.
- create xfrdir on make install (does not remove on make uninstall,
because this could be /tmp).
- Fix segv if xfrdir does not exit.
- log ip address with tcp failure.
- Fix time calculation of zone transfer.
4.0.0b2 BETA 2 release of NSD 4.0
- Add and remove zones from nsd.conf with nsd-control repattern.
- Merge changes from 3.2.15 (such as xname-rcode fix).
- Fix for use with libev.

- performance increases
- support lots of zones
- and more ...
- longer desc in doc/NSD-4-features
- core code is fixed like 3.2.15r3763 (12 dec 2012).
3.2.16 (development branch)

non local addresses. Default no.
- Use IPV6 minimum MTU settings with TCP to reduce failures that

with --enable-zone-stats. [VU#517036 CVE-2012-2979]
- Fix for VU#624931 CVE-2012-2978: NSD denial of service
vulnerability from non-standard DNS packet from any host
on the internet.
- Fallback to AXFR if IXFR is unknown at the primary. NSD considers
IXFR unknown at the primary if there is a negative response for the
IXFR RRtype. This does not override the value for
- Allow for reading in new DNSKEY algorithm mnemonics (RFC5155,
RFC5702, RFC5933, and RFC6605 (ECDSA)).
- Zone statistics, enable with --enable-zone-stats. This stores the
BIND8 stats per zone in a configurable statistics file. This option
does not scale and should therefore not be enabled when serving
many zones.
- Support for TLSA RRtype (DANE).
- Fix for qtype ANY for a wildcard domain in NSEC signed zone: Don't
add the wildcard domain NSEC into the answer section. Instead,
put the wildcard expanded NSEC into the answer section and keep the
wildcard domain NSEC in the authority section.

- Fix bug #430: segfault when MAX_INTERFACES set to more than 65K.
- Fix strptime check for gcc 4.6.2, acx_nlnetlabs update.
- Minimize responses to reduce truncation: NSD will only add optional
records to the authority and additional sections when the response
size does not exceed the minimal response size.
The minimal response size is 512 (no-EDNS), 1480 (EDNS/IPv4),
1220 (EDNS/IPv6), or the advertized EDNS buffer size if that is
smaller than the EDNS default.
The feature is enabled by default. You can disable it by configuring
NSD with --disable-minimal-responses.
- Less NSEC3 prehashing. This will make NSD handle zone transfers
faster, but will decrease the performance of NXDOMAIN and wildcard
NODATA responses. Full prehashing is enabled by default. If you want
less NSEC3 prehashing, configure NSD with --disable-full-prehash.

- Bugfix #234.
- Bugfix #235.
- Reset 'error occurred' after notifying an error occurred at the $TTL or
$ORIGIN directive (Otherwise, the whole zone is skipped because the
error is reset after reading the SOA).
- Minor bugfixes.
- NSD will now fallback to AXFR, only if the master does not support IXFR.
- You can adjust nsdc patch to skip textfile patching. This will
increase the patching process, but will not output to zonefiles
anymore. By default, this is off.

does not support IXFR.
- Allow file rotation on nsd.log.
- The new nsd-patch options -s and -o allows you to skip writing
zonefiles and store the output directly to a database file,
- Format of ixfr.db has changed. When you are planning an upgrade to the
new NSD release, make sure to process the old ixfr.db before starting
the new release (by running nsdc patch).
- IXFR is transmitted over TCP by default instead of UDP. If you want to
continue the use of IXFR/UDP, please modify your zone configuration
file to:
request-xfr: UDP tsigkey
We strongly recommend to enable TSIG if you send IXFR over UDP.
When all masters fail to transmit IXFR/UDP, slave will fallback to
IXFR/TCP and eventually AXFR/TCP.
- nsd-patch prints errors to stderr instead of stdout.
- Only normalize dnames in rdatas when rrtype is listed in RFC 4034,

requests (slave) in nsd.conf, "Bugfix #148".
- nsd-notify and nsd-xfer allow you to configure the outgoing
hostname and source port, in addition to the source address.
- Additional debug and verbose log messages.
- Try to avoid race conditions with NSD reloading and nsdc running,
by writing pidfile before closing old parent process.
- Fixed NSEC3 memory leak in the case NSEC3 is not needed.
- Fixed some memory leaks that happened on error, mostly on
zone transfer errors.
- Bugfix #191: nsd-checkconf allowed only (max_interfaces-1) interfaces.
- The number of maximum interfaces allowed is configurable with
--with-max_interfaces=<number> (thanks John Lightsey).
- Default locations of nsd.db, ixfr.db & xfrd.state are changed to
the /var/db/nsd directory.
- Zone compiler gives more sane error messages when out of
diskspace and bug #172: when compiling single zone file.
- Changed man pages format from mdoc to mansun, to support the Solaris OS.
- Log tcp read error only when connection not reset by peer or when
verbosity level is high.
- RRs are compared without checking the TTL value.
- NSD is now NSEC3 enabled by default. You can disable it by configuring
NSD with --disable-nsec3.
- Added "hide-version" configuration setting. Enabling this feature
stops NSD from answering to CHAOS class version requests.
- Added bind2nsd 0.5.0 ( in contrib/.
- Report source and zone for denied AXFR attempts.
- Better logging for nsd-notify (show 'broken' zone)

directory when chrooted with chrootdir ending with a slash.
- Fixup bug where nsd would return FORMERR if received an edns
query with version set to zero and rdlen larger than zero.

- More elegant handling of malformed nsec3 records from a zone
- Fixup ignored return value in region-allocator.
- Added bind2nsd 0.5.0 ( in contrib/.
- Fixed problem with reload waiting very long. If the OS has a
raging herd problem, NSD could block in a UDP operation and
that process would stop reload from finishing. Made UDP sockets
- Made TCP listen sockets nonblocking. NSD could block in accept.
- Handle the new CERT RDATA types defined in RFC 4398 (submitted by
Mans Nilsson).
- Fixed a bug where zonec would choke on unknown CERT RDATA types.
- Change nsd-notify retry timer from linear into exponential
backoff (submitted by Mans Nilsson).
- Debug flag (-d) behavior changed. Nsd now also forks children when
run in debug mode.
- Added verbosity mode (-V <level>) for extra operational logging.
- zonesdir default is /etc/nsd. This can be overridden in nsd.conf.
- if clients drop the tcp connection this does not result in a logfile
entry, unless verbosity is set 2 or more.
- zonec will print an error when other data is put next to a CNAME.
- Fixup unaligned memory access that could occur when reading ixfr.db
with a partial transfer inside.
- Fixup for the WKS RR type printout by nsd-patch and nsd-xfer.
- Error message 'could not read database CRC' now only given on error.
- ./configure --zonesdir=<directory for zone files> now works to
set a default value for the zonesdir: <dir> nsd.conf directive.
Set zonesdir: "" to disable the change of directory.
- Bug: reload crashes with log message 'continuing with old database',
and after that no more zone updates. Manual fix is to kill -HUP,
but now fixed in software to try to reload again (and again).
- Small speedup where xfrd could briefly be busy-waiting.
- If master sends IXFR with glue that is already present in the zone
this is silently accepted. Printed in debug mode -L 2. To make
the log file smaller.
- Exponential backoff for zones that never worked to max of 4 hours.
For expired zones the SOA retry values are used.
- allow-notify acl entries 'NOKEY' match only queries without TSIG.
- Answers to valid notifies contained wrong RR counts in the header.
The notifies were processed correctly, but now the acknowledgement
reply is in correct DNS format.
- Added contrib/nsd.zones2nsd.conf python script to convert NSD 2 to
NSD 3 config files, contributed by Stephane Bortzmeyer.

executable does not start (due to bad permissions, bad config, ...).
- Bug #152: NSD would not use the identity from nsd.conf, fixed.
- Bug #153: When running with thousands of secondary zones, NSD would

- Bug #143: Improved handling of zonesdir: directive and relative
pidfile, database, diff file, xfrdfile paths in and
nsd-patch. They would not find the files.
- Bug #144: LOC RRtype default values for precision wrong. Fixed.
- Bug #145: NSD failed to reload cases of simultaneous zone transfer.
- Bug #146: NSD fails to write to xfrdfile when chrooted. Fixed.
Also fix for difffile when chrooted.
- Bug #147: NSD runs out of memory. Fixed, memory is reused.
Occurred when running NSD with very big zones and large updates.
- nsd -L 1 logging is smaller, -L 2 contains all debug information.
(only available for debug compiles).

- contains all bug fixes from 2.3.5 and before.
- The sighandler() bug is fixed more thoroughly,
by using pipes for interprocess communication.

portable implementation (mktime_from_utc).
- Bug #103: nsd: trim the SOA's TTL to the MINIMUM value when returning a
negative answer.

- Bug #96: nsd-xfer did not handle 8-bit domain names
- The message priority is now included when logging to a file.
- Zero length RDATA using the unknown RR notation was not
working (except for the APL RR type).
- Bug #93: './configure' error message containing a comma must
be properly bracketed.
- Bug #94: nsd-xfer: Handle unexpected EOF when receiving AXFR
data. Timeout if no data is received for more than 120
seconds (see the TCP_TIMEOUT parameter in config.h).
- Bug #95: An owner starting with an asterisk label ("*") was
being treated as its own wildcard child.
- nsd-xfer: replacement program for named-xfer to perform zone

yet by the nsd server. DNSSEC is also supported. TSIG
requires OpenSSL version 0.9.7 or higher, configure using
--disable-tsig if you do not have OpenSSL installed.
Configure using --with-ssl=path if OpenSSL is not installed
at a standard location.
- New data structure 'buffer_type' for representing binary

packets are still limited to 16383 bytes for optimal
compression of dnames.
- The TSIG key for AXFRs can now also be stored in the file
<zonename>.tsiginfo. This makes it possible to use TSIG
with multiple master servers.

server should respond quicker to signals.
- Fixed parsing of LOC rdata. Fractions and altitude were not
handled correctly.
- Bug #90: handle \000 in TXT records correctly

special processing is not supported.
- Bug #84: NSD now uses SIGUSR1 instead of SIGILL to report stats.
- Bug #85: Support for WKS records.
- Bug #86: The characters "#%&^[]?" can now be used without
backslash in zone file domain names.
- Plugin callback return type fixed.

limited to the IPv6 minimum MTU (1280) unless the
IPV6_USE_MIN_MTU socket option is supported.
- Bug #81: Handle unknown types correctly.
- Bug #82: Zonec: don't report "0 errors" unless -v is
- Bug #83: Close zone files after parsing.
- Handle AFSDB RR type.
- New networking code allows a single server to handle both
UDP and TCP connections. By default up to 10 simultaneous
TCP connections are supported. Use the '-n' flag to change
the default.
- Allow the use of a mnemonic for the algorithm field of a
DNSKEY record.
- Behavior of the zonec -v flag has been modified. By default
zonec will only print a single line with a summary of the
error count.
- Bug #75: Fixed typo in previous "fix".
- Queries for QTYPE DS (DNSSEC) were not handled correctly in
certain cases.
- Partial support for unknown RRs. Known RR types with

the first time.
- Bug #78: Multiple zones, each with include directives, are
now compiled correctly.

- New database format that is much more compact and portable
across architectures.
- The new zone compiler is now the default and the old zone
compiler has been removed.

difference with BIND in the responses generated (the full
query name is now used for compression).
- CNAME target records are now generated from wildcard
records if necessary.
- mmap(2) isn't currently supported.
- Not all RR types are supported by zonec (such as LOC).
- New name lookup algorithm. This required a change to the
database format. Performance should increase at the expense
of database size and memory usage.
- New zone compiler (zonec2) based on flex and yacc, fully RFC
compliant (still in alpha).
- Database can be loaded using mmap(2) (use the --enable-mmap
configure option to enable). This is useful on operating
systems such as Solaris that do not allow memory overcommit.
- Region based memory allocation and resource management.
- New internal format for storing domain names. Each dname
now includes an array of label offsets within the domain
- Updates to the plugin API.
- Bug #65: The syslog facility is now a compile time option
(--with-facility=FACILITY). The default facility is DAEMON.
- Bug #66: Automatic periodic dumping of the statistics (using
the -s option) is now continued after a database reload.
- Bug #72: If an RRset for a child domain is defined before
the RRset of the parent domain the parent's RRset would be
- Bug #65: The syslog facility is now a compile time option
(--with-facility=FACILITY). The default facility is DAEMON.
- Bug #66: Automatic periodic dumping of the statistics (using
the -s option) is now continued after a database reload.
- NSD would try to kill pid -1 on startup if forking of a child
process failed.
- Do not log EAGAIN errors on calls to recvfrom. These errors
should be harmless.
- Bug #59: NSD returns FORMERR when the query name is >= 246
- Bug #60: Zonec runs out of file descriptors with many zones.
- Bug #61: nsdc uses /bin/sh hardwired (and should not).

- Bug #63: nsdc update and zonec are too talkative.
- Bug #64: Answer for request of a host resolved by a
wildcard-resource-record is not understandable by dig.
- AXFR terminates early if a zone contains a CNAME pointing
the the zone's domain name (SOA record) (bug #56).
- During an AXFR memory above the top of the stack was
accessed. This could lead to occasional AXFR errors (bad
- NSD now prints its version number and exits when invoked
with the -v flag (bug #57).
- NSD prints help information and exits when invoked with the
-h flag.
- NSD is now a single parent process (handling child
termination and database reloads) plus multiple UDP and TCP
child processes handling queries. Before the parent process
also handled UDP queries. This change simplifies the parent
and child processes and allows the use of multiple
concurrent UDP servers.
- Experimental plugin support. This required a minor,
incompatible change to the database format. Make sure you
recompile your database. Use --enable-plugins to enable.
- Full IPv6 support (for multi-homing and for Linux, thanks to
Colm MacCárthaigh and Jun-ichiro itojun Hagino). Use
--enable-ipv6 to enable.

- Use sigaction(2) instead of signal(2).
- The query_process function has been split up for clarity.
- CHAOS TXT queries failed on big-endian machines.
- Portability fixes for Tru64 (thanks to Stephane Bortzmeyer),
HP-UX, and MacOS X (thanks to Ronald van der Pol).

- using named-xfer with TSIG for inbound axfr
- the order of records in the database is from now
on significant
- since Berkeley DB doesnt define order for sequential
access it is no longer supported
- white space problem in zonec is fixed
- please see appropriate man pages for the known bugs
- Although NSD allows one to configure a zone without SOA record and
use it as so called ``cached'' non-authoritative data, it is decided
that having this functionality is wrong, dangerous and will be removed
