The FreeIPA team is proud to announce bind-dyndb-ldap version 5.1.

It can be downloaded from

The new version has also been built for Fedora 20+ and and is on its way to updates-testing:

Release to Fedora 'updates' repo will be coordinated with FreeIPA 4.0 release to prevent breakages.

== Changes in 5.1 ==
[1] Fix crash during reconnection to LDAP.

== Changes in 5.0 ==
[1] Support for DNSSEC in-line signing was added. Now any LDAP zone can be
    signed with keys provided by user.

[2] DNSKEY, RRSIG, NSEC and NSEC3 records are automatically managed
    by BIND+bind-dyndb-ldap. Respective attributes in LDAP are ignored.

[3] Forwarder semantic was changed to match BIND's semantics:
    - idnsZone object always represents master zone
    - idnsForwardZone object (new) always represents forward zone

[4] Master root zone can be stored in LDAP.

== Upgrading ==
A server can be upgraded by installing updated RPM. BIND has to be restarted manually after the RPM installation.

!!! CAUTION !!!
idnsZone object class changed it's semantics in version 5.0. Please read
and update idnsForwarders and idnsForward policy attributes in your DNS zones accordingly.

Transition from idnsZone to idnsForwardZone object class can be made seamless if you change data in LDAP before you upgrade to version 5.x. All bind-dyndb-ldap versions >= 3.0 support the idnsForwardZone object class.

Users of FreeIPA < 4.0 should be careful when upgrading bind-dyndb-ldap to version >= 5.0 (if they do not upgrade to FreeIPA 4.x at the same time).

Configuration semantics related to conditional (per-zone) forwarding has changed and FreeIPA < 4.0 doesn't have appropriate user interface and API.

It is safe to upgrade if you use *only* global forwarders (shown by 'ipa dnsconfig-show') and *do not* use per-zone forwarders (shown by 'ipa dnszone-show').

Don't hesitate to ask freeipa-users mailing list if you need help with upgrade.
!!! CAUTION !!!

Downgrading back to any 4.x version is supported.
