The first beta-version of OpenDNSSEC has been released.

The following things are new for this release:

• <Purge> tag added to automatically delete keys that have been dead  
for some interval.
• Rename all OpenDNSSEC command line tools and daemons to ods-XXX  
(e.g. ksmutil becomes ods-ksmutil).
• kasp_check command added to check the conf.xml and kasp.xml  
configuration files for sanity and consistency.
• communicated and keygend combined to form “ods-enforcerd”.
• ksmutil command line changes. Most commands have changed slightly,  
but there are some significant changes (see command-tools-syntax.txt  
for details.)
• Enforcer database now has a version number. If it differs from the  
version number in the code (specified via a #define statement), the  
software will issue an error message and not connect to the database.
• “ksmutil list keys” now displays the keytag if the -l flag is passed  
to it.
• “Emergency Keys” renamed to “Standby Keys” as this better reflects  
their role in OpenDNSSEC.
• The behaviour of SOA Serial value ‘counter’ has changed according to  
Ticket #31.
• The directory “xml” and been renamed to “conf”. (This is part of  
repository clean.)
• Zone fetcher added, that will do AXFR from the master.
• There has been several changes to the KASP DB.

Known issue:
TCP-support for LDNS on Solaris is currently broken due to an issue  
with SO_RCVTIMEO. The result is that the zonefetcher doesn’t work. No  
other parts of OpenDNSSEC is affected by this bug. There is currently  
no workaround.

There are also a tar ball for this beta-release:
