We’re very pleased to release Pi-hole v4.0 today, which includes fixes, tweaks, and lots of new stuff, including FTLDNS (special thanks to our beta testers!) In a sentence, FTLDNS is
dnsmasq with Pi-hole’s special sauce baked in.
FTLDNS does everything
dnsmasq does because it is
dnsmasq–just our fork of it. So all of your existing config files will still work with it. We intentionally modified the original
dnsmasq source code as little as possible so that we can easily integrate any upstream changes as they are released.
Read on to find out everything included in this release or read the technical details in the changelogs.
