Release Notes: This is a release candidate for BIND 9.0.0. BIND version 9 is a major rewrite of nearly all aspects of the underlying BIND architecture. This re-architecting of BIND was necessitated by the expected demands of: 1) Domain name system growth, particularly in very large zones such as .COM. 2) Protocol enhancements necessary to securely query and update zones. 3) Protocol enhancements necessary to take advantage of certain architectural features of IP version 6. These demands implied performance requirements that were not necessarily easy to attain with the BIND version 8 architecture.
Release Notes: A new lightweight resolver library and associated resolver daemon (which should still be considered experimental), stable and complete server-side support for DNSSEC secured zones with the exception of the handling of wildcard records, new default values for 'transfer-format' and 'listen-on-v6' options, linking of lwresd to named, use of the DNSSEC key generation and signing tools to generate randomness from keyboard input on systems that lack /dev/random, addition of a plain text version of the Administrator Reference Manual, and various bugfixes and cleanups.
