* Windows binary packages distributed by ISC are now built and linked
against OpenSSL 1.0.0i
* BIND now recognizes the TLSA resource record type, created to
support IETF DANE (DNS-based Authentication of Named Entities)
* The locking strategy around the handling of iterative queries
has been tuned to reduce unnecessary contention in a multi-threaded
environment. (Note that this may not provide a measurable
improvement over previous versions of BIND, but it corrects the
performance impact of change 3309 / RT #27995) [RT #29239]
* Addresses a race condition that can cause named to to crash when
the masters list for a zone is updated via rndc reload/reconfig
* Fixes a race condition in zone.c that can cause named to crash
during the processing of rndc delzone [RT #29028]
* Prevents a named segfault from resolver.c due to procedure
fctx_finddone() not being thread-safe. [RT #27995]
* Uses hmctx, not mctx when freeing rbtdb->heaps to avoid triggering
an assertion when flushing cache data. [RT #28571]
* Resolves inconsistencies in locating DNSSEC keys where zone names
contain characters that require special mappings [RT #28600]
* A new flag -R has been added to queryperf for running tests
using non-recursive queries. It also now builds correctly on
MacOS version 10.7 (darwin) [RT #28565]
* Named no longer crashes if gssapi is enabled in named.conf but
was not compiled into the binary [RT #28338]
* SDB now handles unexpected errors from back-end database drivers
gracefully instead of exiting on an assert. [RT #28534]
