        Release Notes: This release is more than a year in the making, with millions of DNS queries processed during several months of testing. It brings some significant improvements regarding scalability and flexibility. Resolvers are now pluggable just as ZoneProviders, adding another dimension compared to 1.0, which was a strictly authoritative server. Custom resolvers can now be added, and multiple resolvers can be used simultaneously configured as a chain.
