The FreeIPA team is proud to announce bind-dyndb-ldap version 3.0.

It can be downloaded from The new version has also been built for Fedora 19:

This release includes several fixes and new features.

== Changes in 3.0 ==

[1] DNAME records are supported. DNAME attribute was changed to single-valued.

[2] Master and forward zones now have separate object classes:
    idnsZone and idnsForwardZone. idnsForward* attributes in idnsZone object
    class will have old semantics for some time.

[3] Settings system was heavily refactored. From now, unknown options in
    configuration file cause error. DNS dynamic updates should create
    slightly lower load on LDAP server because of settings 'cache'.

[4] Deadlock triggered by PTR record synchronization was fixed.

== Upgrading ==

An server can be upgraded simply by installing updated rpms. BIND has to be restarted manually after the RPM installation.

You will need to clean up configuration file /etc/named.conf if your configuration contains typos or other unsupported options.

Downgrading back to any 2.x version is supported under following conditions:
- new object class idnsForwardZone is not utilized
- DNAME records are not utilized
- configured connection count is >= 3 (to prevent deadlocks in 2.x releases)
