NSD 4.9.0rc1 pre-release is available:
sha256 707ad3c68a4db0370b91e0a8c04604ffc423b49902dac5b4fdd57df40626457c

This release adds support for DNS Catalog Zones (RFC 9432) version "2".

Both producer and consumer roles for catalog zones are implemented, but
only a single consumer zone is allowed. The "coo" property, relevant
when multiple consumer zones can be configured, is therefore not
supported. The "group" property is. Consult the nsd.conf man page for
details on how to configure and use catalog zones.

Thanks to Fredrik Pettai from Sunet for providing feedback and testing
DNS Catalog Zones.

- Merge #315: Allow SOA apex queries to otherwise with allow-query
   protected zones for clients matching a provide-xfr rule, because
   clients that are allowed to transfer the zone need to be able to
   query SOA at the apex preceding the actual transfer.
- Merge #304: Support for Catalog zones version "2" as specified in
   RFC 9432. Both the consumer as well as the producer role are
   implemented, but only a single catalog consumer zone is allowed.
   The "coo" property, only relevant with multiple catalog consumer,
   is therefore not supported. The "group" property is supported.
   Have a look at the nsd.conf man page for details on how to
   configure and use catalog zones.

- Fix to sync the tests script file common.sh.
- Update test script file common.sh.
- Fix #306: Missing AC_SUBST(dbdir) breaks installation with 4.8.0.
- Fix for #306: Create directory for xfrd.state and zone.list files
   in make install.
- Merge #307 from anandb-ripencc: Many improvements to the nsd.conf
   man page.
- Fix #308: Deprecate "multi-master-check" in favour of
- Merge #309: More RFC 8499 compliance.
- Fix control-reconfig-xfrd test for zonestatus primary that is
   printed by nsd-control zonestatus.
- Move acx_nlnetlabs.m4 to version 47, with crypt32 check.
- Move acx_nlnetlabs.m4 to version 48, with ssp and getaddrinfo
   include check.
- Fix #313: nsd 4.8 stats with implausible spikes.
- Fix compile with memclean for xfrd nsd.db close.
- In xfrd del secondary zone, the timer could perhaps have
   event_added, and if so, it would not be event_del if a tcp
   connection is active at the time. This could cause the libevent
   event lists to fail. Also fix to make sure to set event_added for
   the nsd-control ssl nonblocking handshake and check event_added
   there too, for extra certainty.
- Merge #316: Fix to reap defunct children by the reload process that
   emerged when some serve child processes were still serving TCP
   request while the others had already quit, while the reload process
   was waiting for the signal from the backup/old main process that all
   children exited.
- Fix (also from Merge #316) to reap exited children more frequently
   from server main loop for processes that exited during reload, but
   missed the initial reaping at start of the main loop because they
   took somewhat longer to exit.
- Fix timing sensitivity in ixfr_outsync test.
- Test if debug is available in do-tests.
- Enforce timeout from NSD in ixfr_gone test.
- Update expressions in ixfr_and_restart test.
- Make algorithm explicit in control-repattern test.
- Switch algorithm to hmac-256 for testplan_mess test.
