> Dear OpenDNSSEC community,
> Today we enter the final steps towards the 2.0 release by handing out
> the first real beta.  The development is complete, testing has completed
> and there are no bugs that would stop you replacing 1.4 with 2.0.
> Download it here:
> https://dist.opendnssec.org/source/testing/opendnssec-2.0.0b1.tar.gz
> The new version presents a complete re-write of the enforcer, adding
> some features and guarantees to not let your zone go bogus even when
> modifying critical parameters.
> Instead of focusing on the new we would like to know whether your
> current uses are met with this release.  This version is new and shiny,
> has new things, but we have more in store.  This as soon as we can
> finalize this new baseline version that marks the final transition of
> OpenDNSSEC to the NLNET Labs supported open source software.
> We hope that with your feedback we can make rapid cycles towards a
> quick final release.  After the proper 2.0 release, we plan to have a
> more incremental development schedule with several releases per year
> with new features and bug fixes to prevent such a long cycle as 2.0 had.
> Some heads-up when trying it out after being used to 1.4:
> - Scripted migration from 1.4 to 2.0 is available, see MIGRATION file;
> - Use command ods-enforcer-db-setup rather than "ods-ksmutil setup";
> - Any other use of ods-ksmutil is replaced with the ods-enforcer
> command, which requires the enforcer daemon to be running;
> - Use ods-enforcer zone add and delete rather than modifying the
> zonelist.xml file yourself.  This file is not kept up-to-date
> automatically anymore;
> - to start using OpenDNSSEC, use ods-enforcer policy import instead
> of update kasp to update your policies;
> - Getting started at:
> https://wiki.opendnssec.org/display/DOCS20/Quick+start+guide
> Hope to hear from you,
> the OpenDNSSEC team.
