CoreDNS-1.0.2 Release

CoreDNS-1.0.2 Release Notes.

We are pleased to announce the release of CoreDNS-1.0.2! This release can be summarized as “help external plugin developers” as most changes are geared towards exposing CoreDNS functionality to make this as easy as possible. Is also a fairly small release.


Expose the directives list, so that external plugins can be easily added without mucking with CoreDNS code, see the pull request for details.

Fix crash when there are no handlers that can actually serve queries, i.e. a Corefile with only debug and pprof for instance.


  • metrics has a New function to help external plugin developers.
  • health plugin now checks all plugins for a health.Healther implementation and will export health for those plugins that do. Again helps external plugin developers.
  • rewrite gained regular expression and substring-matching support.


The following people helped with getting this release done: Brad Beam, Francois Tur, Frederic Hemberger, James Hartig, Max Schmitt, Miek Gieben, Paul Greenberg, Yong Tang.
