Comparative Performance Results of BIND Versions - March 2020
Now that the latest version of BIND 9 has been released, it is worthwhile to look at the performance enhancements that have taken place over the past couple of years.Read post
As per ISC’s Software Support Policy, we have designated the 9.7 branch of BIND 9 as End of Life. This means there will be no further bug fixes for this branch. We urge all customers running 9.7 or earlier to upgrade to our 9.9 branch.
BIND 9.9 includes important bug and security fixes, and ISC has made a public commitment to designate BIND 9.9 as our next Extended Support Version (ESV), ensuring that it will receive critical updates for years to come.
The 9.6-ESV branch will be EOL’d by June, 2013.
Additionally, ISC’s CTO, Joao Damas, wrote an informative and important blog: BIND 9.9 - Why Should You Care? … and we hope you do care.
The full list of improvements to each version can be tracked in our release notes for BIND, but for operators who are considering switching to 9.9 for the first time here are some of the improvements we think you will especially appreciate.
