Our March 2023 maintenance releases of BIND 9 are available and can
be downloaded from the ISC software download page, https://www.isc.org/download.

A summary of significant changes in the new releases can be found in their release notes:

  - current supported stable branches:

9.16.39 - https://downloads.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.16.39/doc/arm/html/notes.html 9.18.13 - https://downloads.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.18.13/doc/arm/html/notes.html

  - experimental development branch:

9.19.11 - https://downloads.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.19.11/doc/arm/html/notes.html


We recommend to users contemplating moving from the EOL BIND 9.11 branch
to the BIND 9.16 branch that they read the following document:



With the January release of BIND 9.18.11, we are now designating the BIND 9.18 branch an Extended Support Version (ESV). Users of ISC-packaged BIND please note that we are not yet changing the version of BIND provided in our Cloudsmith and COPR repositories; these will remain the same until BIND 9.20 is published, at which point we will announce the rollover of the repository contents.

We have also published a new document covering differences to be aware of when migrating from the BIND 9.16 branch to the BIND 9.18 branch:


Users migrating from EOL BIND 9.11 branch directly to BIND 9.18 (bypassing BIND 9.16) should look at both the "changes to be aware of" documents linked above.
