Technitium DNS Server v8 Released!

I am happy to announce the release of Technitium DNS Server v8, a cross-platform, free, open source software that can be used by anyone, be it a novice or an expert user. It features an easy to use web based GUI and works with default config that allows the server to run out-of-the-box.

This is a major release that adds many core DNS features like support for DNSSEC validation and signed zones.
