BIND 9 development began in 1998. In that same year, Internet came through a 56k modem, Yahoo! Mail was less than a year old, Google was founded with 18 server computers in a garage, and Internet Explorer overtook Netscape in browser share for the first time. In the last fifteen years, the world has experienced extraordinary technological progress, not the least of which occurred in Internet operations, software engineering, and computer architecture, all in addition to evolving user expectations. Today, BIND 9′s core architecture often encounters requirements that were beyond imagination in 1998. In 2009, after extensive planning, we began developing a solution under the name BIND 10–but somewhere along the way, we realized we were building something far more.
The BIND 10 Project is a new take on nameserver software from the ISC. For more information please visit the engineering website at: http://bind10.isc.org/wiki
