CoreDNS-1.0.3 Release

CoreDNS-1.0.3 Release Notes.

We are pleased to announce the release of CoreDNS-1.0.3! This is a small bugfix release, but we also have a new plugin: template.


Manual pages are now generated from the READMEs, you can find them in the man/ directory. A coredns(1) and corefile(5) one where also added.


The fallthrough directive was overhauled and now allows a list of zones to be specified. It will then only fallthrough for those zones, see plugin/

A new plugin template was added. It allows you to use Go (text) templates to craft a response, see for docs.

  • dnssec implements Cloudflares’s NSEC blacklies better.
  • kubernetes, adds a fix for pod insecure look ups for non-IP addresses.
  • health adds a metrics for the duration it takes to GET /health. Useful for getting a sense of overloadedness of the process.


The following people helped with getting this release done: John Belamaric, Miek Gieben, Rene Treffer, Yong Tang.
