OpenDNSSEC 1.4 end-of-life, upgrading and testing versions

OpenDNSSEC 2.1 was released in February 2017, and in the past two-and-half year it has proven itself to be stable and viable upgrade of 1.4, and has additional features and improvements. Therefore we announce end-of-life of OpenDNSSEC 1.4. One of the steps towards future releases of OpenDNSSEC that have better experience and with shorter cycles.

Starting today, October 8, 2019, in accordance with our policies, we will only provide essential fixes and support until 9 October 2020, after which support will no longer be available. We feel confident that existing installations can upgrade without much hassle and offer support to our customers in doing so.

OpenDNSSEC 2.1 serves as the replacement for the 1.4 LTS. The current version is 2.1.4 (download | announcement). There is a migration step necessary, for which you can find a good breakdown at the migration page.

For future releases we will be in contact with the community and interested parties about how to proceed exactly. OpenDNSSEC 2.2 with main feature fast updates has had a number of testing releases that can be found on our distribution server. We do not however expect 2.2 to become an LTS release as on customer feedback, other improvements will lead to a more interesting release on which we can build.
