Release candidates for upcoming maintenance releases in the 9.9, 9.10, and 9.11 branches of BIND are now available.
Release notes can be found with the releases or in the ISC Knowledge Base: 9.9.12rc1: https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01575/0/BIND-9.9.12rc1-Release-Notes.html 9.10.7rc1: https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01574/0/BIND-9.10.7rc1-Release-Notes.html 9.11.3rc1: https://kb.isc.org/article/AA-01572/81/BIND-9.11.3rc1-Release-Notes.html Users who are migrating an existing BIND configuration to these new versions should take special note of this change if they are DDNS users: "update-policy rules that otherwise ignore the name field now require that it be set to "." to ensure that any type list present is properly interpreted. Previously, if the name field was omitted from the rule declaration but a type list was present, it wouldn't be interpreted as expected." It's a correction to an ambiguous case that was previously allowed, but which was capable of causing unexpected results when accidentally applied. The new requirement eliminates is intended to eliminate the confusion, which previously caused some operators to misapply security policies. However, due to the new requirement, named configuration files that relied on the previous behavior will no longer be accepted. The syntax change should not affect most operators, even those using "update-policy" to define Dynamic DNS permissions, but if you are unsure then we recommend using the "named-checkconf" utility provided with BIND to ensure that the syntax used in your configuration is allowed before applying your upgrade in production. _______________________________________________ bind-announce mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.isc.org/mailman/listinfo/bind-announce
