			BIND 8.3.3 Release

BIND 8.3.3 is the fourth release of 8.3.  It is a maintenance release and
contains a security fix.

The recommended version to use is BIND 9.2.1.  If for whatever reason you
must run BIND 8, use nothing earlier than 8.2.6-REL, 8.3.3-REL.  Do not
under any circumstances run BIND 4.

'named' is *not* vulnerable to this security problem.

Highlights vs. 8.3.2
        Security Fix libbind. All applications linked against libbind
        need to re-linked.
        'rndc restart' now preserves named's arguments

Highlights vs. BIND 8.3.1:
	dig, nslookup, host and nsupdate have improved IPv6 support.

Highlights vs. BIND 8.3.0:

	Critical bug fix to prevent DNS storms. If you have BIND 8.3.0 you
	need to upgrade.
