BIND 9.9 includes a number of changes from BIND 9.8 and earlier
releases. New features include:
- Inline signing, allowing automatic DNSSEC signing of
master zones without modification of the zonefile, or
"bump in the wire" signing in slaves.
- NXDOMAIN redirection.
- New 'rndc flushtree' command clears all data under a given
name from the DNS cache.
- New 'rndc sync' command dumps pending changes in a dynamic
zone to disk without a freeze/thaw cycle.
- New 'rndc signing' command displays or clears signing status
records in 'auto-dnssec' zones.
- NSEC3 parameters for 'auto-dnssec' zones can now be set prior
to signing, eliminating the need to initially sign with NSEC.
- Startup time improvements on large authoritative servers.
- Slave zones are now saved in raw format by default.
- Several improvements to response policy zones (RPZ).
- Improved hardware scalability by using multiple threads
to listen for queries and using finer-grained client locking
- The 'also-notify' option now takes the same syntax as
'masters', so it can used named masterlists and TSIG keys.
- 'dnssec-signzone -D' writes an output file containing only DNSSEC
data, which can be included by the primary zone file.
- 'dnssec-signzone -R' forces removal of signatures that are
not expired but were created by a key which no longer exists.
- 'dnssec-signzone -X' allows a separate expiration date to
be specified for DNSKEY signatures from other signatures.
- New '-L' option to dnssec-keygen, dnssec-settime, and
dnssec-keyfromlabel sets the default TTL for the key.
- dnssec-dsfromkey now supports reading from standard input,
to make it easier to convert DNSKEY to DS.
- RFC 1918 reverse zones have been added to the empty-zones
table per RFC 6303.
- Dynamic updates can now optionally set the zone's SOA serial
number to the current UNIX time.
- DLZ modules can now retrieve the source IP address of
the querying client.
- 'request-ixfr' option can now be set at the per-zone level.
