BIND users,

It is time to start making plans to migrate from 9.9 or 9.10 to a more recent version. The end of maintenance is approaching for both the 9.9 and 9.10 branches. We will stop maintaining these branches this summer, in June 2018.

With the imminent release of BIND 9.12, and the new plan to release development versions (e.g. 9.13), we will have three supported branches to choose from by the time we EOL 9.9 and 9.10. To read more about the updated release plan for BIND, see the blog post

BIND 9.11 will be a good choice for many of you, because that is an Extended Support Version. We plan to support 9.11 through 2021. For more extensive advice on which version to choose, see the updated KB article,

Thank you,

Product Manager
