Hi all,

We're pleased to announce the second alpha release of the PowerDNS Authoritative Server version 4.0.0. This release is the first release to use OpenSSL for nearly all crypto-primitives (GOST is still provided by Botan) and has a breaking change in the API compared to alpha 1. A list of new features of the upcoming 4.0.0 release is available on our documentation website[1].
