CoreDNS-1.1.3 Release

CoreDNS-1.1.3 Release Notes.

We are pleased to announce the release of CoreDNS-1.1.3!

This release has fixes in the plugins, small core updates and experimental DNS over HTTPs support. We also announce the deprecation of a few things.


Experimental DNS-over-HTTPS support was added in the server. Use https:// as the server’s scheme in the configuration.

The -log flag actually doesn’t do anything, so this is a deprecation notice that this flag will be removed in the next release.


  • metrics All in-tree plugins serve metrics with a server label.
    • cache and dnssec drop the capacity metrics
    • add a panic counter: coredns_panic_count_total
  • etcd supports A and AAAA record under the zone’s apex.
  • rewrite now handles continue in response rewrites.
  • forward clean ups, esp when shutting it down.
  • cache adds some optimization.
  • kubernetes adds option to ignore services without ready endpoints.
  • Deprecation notice for the reverse plugin.
  • Deprecation notice for the https_google protocol in proxy.
