BIND 9.11 (Extended Support Version) is a stable branch of BIND. This document summarizes significant changes since the last production release on that branch.
Please see the file
CHANGES for a more
detailed list of changes and bug fixes.
The latest versions of BIND 9 software can always be found at http://www.isc.org/downloads/. There you will find additional information about each release, source code, and pre-compiled versions for Microsoft Windows operating systems.
With the release of BIND 9.11.0, ISC changed to the open source license for BIND from the ISC license to the Mozilla Public License (MPL 2.0).
The MPL-2.0 license requires that if you make changes to licensed software (e.g. BIND) and distribute them outside your organization, that you publish those changes under that same license. It does not require that you publish or disclose anything other than the changes you made to our software.
This requirement will not affect anyone who is using BIND, with or without modifications, without redistributing it, nor anyone redistributing it without changes. Therefore, this change will be without consequence for most individuals and organizations who are using BIND.
Those unsure whether or not the license change affects their use of BIND, or who wish to discuss how to comply with the license may contact ISC at https://www.isc.org/mission/contact/.
The TCP client quota set using the tcp-clients option could be exceeded in some cases. This could lead to exhaustion of file descriptors. This flaw is disclosed in CVE-2018-5743. [GL #615]
When trusted-keys and
managed-keys are both configured for the
same name, or when trusted-keys is used to
configure a trust anchor for the root zone and
dnssec-validation is set to
auto, automatic RFC 5011 key
rollovers will fail.
This combination of settings was never intended to work, but there was no check for it in the parser. This has been corrected; a warning is now logged. (In BIND 9.15 and higher this error will be fatal.) [GL #868]
BIND 9.11 (Extended Support Version) will be supported until at least December, 2021. See https://www.isc.org/downloads/software-support-policy/ for details of ISC's software support policy.
