History of BIND 10
The design of BIND 9 was begun in 1998. That year also saw the first release of Windows 98 and the Winter Olympics in Nagano, Japan. Also in 1998, Titanic won the Academy Award for Best Picture, Intel released the 333MHz "Deschutes" Pentium II chip, and France beat Brazil to win the World Cup. It's been a while.
Since that time, there have been many significant changes in the Internet operations environment, in software engineering techniques, in computer architecture, and in user expectations. BIND 9's core architecture is increasingly coming against requirements that were not even imagined when the development of BIND 9 began.
So, after extensive planning and market research, ISC is now creating BIND 10. We are setting out to produce a new code base, partly based on the current BIND 9, that will be able to meet the needs of the next decade as well as BIND 9 met the needs of the past decade.
