CoreDNS-1.3.0 Release

CoreDNS-1.3.0 Release Notes.

We are pleased to announce the release of CoreDNS-1.3.0!


In this release we do the EDNS0 handling in the server and make it compliant with This fits a theme where we move more and more protocol details into the server to make life easier for plugin authors.


  • k8s_external a new plugin that allows external zones to point to Kubernetes in-cluster services.

  • rewrite fixes a bug where a rule would eat the first character of a name

  • log now supported the metadata labels. It also fixes a bug in the formatting of a plugin logging a info/failure/warning

  • forward removes the dynamic read timeout and uses a fixed value now.

  • kubernetes now checks if a zone transfer is allowed. Also allow a TTL of 0 to avoid caching in the cache plugin.
