New release candidates are available for upcoming maintenance releases
in the 9.11, and 9.12 stable release branches of BIND.

Release notes can be found with the releases or via the following links:

 9.11.5rc1:
https://ftp.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.11.5rc1/RELEASE-NOTES-bind-9.11.5rc1.html
 9.12.3rc1:
https://ftp.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.12.3rc1/RELEASE-NOTES-bind-9.12.3rc1.html

These releases introduce two new update policy rulesets, krb5-selfsub
and ms-selfsub, which were promised in the announcement of CVE-2018-5741.
They are meant to reproduce the behavior which, prior to CVE-2018-5741,
was  incorrectly claimed for the krb5-subdomain and ms-subdomain rulesets,
in case any operators were relying on exactly the behavior promised
in the (incorrect) documentation for those features.  Please see our
announcement for CVE-2018-5741 if you need more information:
