			BIND 8.3.2-T1B

This is a beta test release of BIND 8.3.2 which is the third release of 8.3.

The recommended version to use is BIND 9.2.1.  If for whatever reason you
must run BIND 8, use nothing earlier than 8.2.5-REL, 8.3.1-REL.  Do not
under any circumstances run BIND 4.

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.
