We are happy to announce that the first public preview of ORF 5.5 has finally arrived. The new release brings long-requested features and many enhancements – try it today.
Thanks to the kind feedback that we have received from all of you, we were able to locate and fix several technical issues in our web-based SPF Policy Tester. The following is a short summary of changes, in no particular order:
- DNS lookup limit counters for SPF terms (“include”, “a”, “mx”, “ptr”, “exists” and “redirect”) and for void lookups now propagate out from recursive evaluations and are tracked in global counters, limiting the maximum number of queries caused by terms to ten, and the number of void lookups to two – as specified in RFC 7208 (Section 4.6.4).
- The status of the DNS lookup limit counters (for SPF terms and DNS void lookups) is now displayed at the end of each DNS lookup, as well as at the end of the SPF evaluation.
- Similarly to ORF Fusion, the SPF Policy Tester is now capable of retrieving oversized TXT records using the TCP protocol.
