Concerns/warnings in upgrading from 9.9 to 9.11?

I currently run 9.9.9-P4 on recursive caching servers and with the 
announcement that 9.9 and 9.10 are approaching end of maintenance, I've 
decided it's time to move to 9.11.

Are there any issues, warnings, concerns in upgrading? Changes that need 
to be made to named.conf? I know there are new features but I'm more 
concerned about an in-place upgrade with no change to the current build 
process or configuration.
