BIND 9.11.16 and 9.14.11 are maintenance release versions of
the existing 9.11 (ESV) and 9.14 release branches and contain
the usual assortment of bug fixes and minor feature improvements.
The bigger news in today's set of releases is the release of BIND 9.16.0:
the code refactoring, new features, and performance work which were done
for the 9.15 experimental branch are now considered complete and stable
enough to be moved to a production branch of BIND, capping major changes
to that work and moving it to the new stable branch.
Significant work included in the 9.16 branch includes:
- New Key and Signing Policy (KASP) features provide simplified
DNSSEC key and signing management using policies defined by the
- BIND's networking system has been substantially reworked.
- The way that trust anchors are managed has been improved.
- DLV (Domain Look-aside Verification) has been deprecated
since BIND 9.12. And dlv.isc.org [the main service used by
those previously relying on DLV] has been turned off since
2017. Support for DLV has now been removed completely,
shortening BIND's validator by hundreds of lines of code
and greatly reducing its complexity.
