CoreDNS-1.1.0 Release

CoreDNS-1.1.0 Release Notes.

We are pleased to announce the release of CoreDNS-1.1.0!

CoreDNS has been promoted to the incubating level in the CNCF! This has been made possible by the work done by contributors, users and adopters.

Thank you all!


Bump the version to 1.1.0, as we deprecate two plugins (shutdown and startup).

In CoreDNS 1.0.6 the bind plugin was extended to allow binding to multiple interfaces. This release adds the ability serve the same zone on different interfaces (we used to block this for no good reason). I.e. this now works:

. {
    # ..

. {
    # ...


  • The plugins shutdown and startup where marked deprecated in 1.0.6. This release removes them. You should use on instead.
  • A new plugin was added: reload, which watches for changes in your Corefile and then automatically will reload the process. This is not yet bullet proof, some plugins can fail to setup during a reload. See the discussion in issue 1445.
  • A number of plugins can only be used once in a server block, but didn’t make this explicit. I.e. dnssec would silently overwrite earlier config. The following plugins now return an error when used multiple times in a single Server Block: cache, dnssec, errors, forward, hosts, nsid, metrics, kubernetes, pprof, reload, root.
  • Trace adds support for a Datadog endpoint.
  • Some changes went into dnstap, make it easier to use from other plugins.
  • Small change in the log plugin, the log default will now also log the client’s port number and IPv6 addresses are printed with brackets: [::1].
