Due to the continuing level of effort required to support BIND 8, ISC
has decided to change the status of BIND 8 to 'end of life'.

ISC strongly encourages users who depend on BIND 8 to migrate to BIND 9
as soon as possible.

It's never easy to retire a product. The security issues of BIND 8 are
many, and 7 years after the release of BIND 9, ISC must devote our
efforts to maintaining and enhancing the current version.  BIND 9 was
always intended as a replacement for BIND 8, thus there are no more BIND
8 releases planned beyond 8.4.7-P1, being released today.

Please see ISC's website at for
additional information and migration tools.
