BIND 9.11.0 – Third Alpha (planned date)

BIND 9.11.0 – Third Alpha (planned date)

BIND 9.11.0 is a new feature train, with a many changes and new features. We are hoping to get a lot of people testing this, but please, don’t run any alpha release in a critical production system.

New features in BIND 9.11.0 included in the first alpha:

  • dyndb interface, a high performance database back end interface, contributed by our friends at RedHat
  • DNSSEC negative trust anchors, a very helpful tool for temporarily dealing with DNSSEC operational issues
  • Support for the DNSTAP query and response logging system. DNSTAP is developed by Robert Edmonds of Farsight Security.
  • A bias towards preferring DNS services over IPv6, where they are available
  • Performance improvements

The second alpha will fix bugs found in the first alpha release.

Additional features added in the third alpha:

  • Catalog zones, a new provisioning method that enables you to add a new zone on the Master only. The slaves or secondary servers will pick up both the new zone and the zone’s contents from the Master
  • DNSSEC Key Manager, a new utility that will automate managing zone signing key rollovers
