Our March 2023 maintenance releases of BIND 9 are available and can
be downloaded from the ISC software download page,
A summary of significant changes in the new releases can be found in
their release notes:
- current supported stable branches:
- experimental development branch:
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.
