It can be downloaded from https://fedorahosted.org/released/bind-dyndb-ldap/
The new version has also been built for Fedora 21+ and and is on its way to
This version is also available from FreeIPA COPR repo:
 Internal locking was reworked to prevent crashes and deadlocks.
 Kerberos ticket expiration is now handled correctly.
 BIND no longer crashes after removing root zone from LDAP.
 Root zone handling was fixed to prevent accidental child zone removal.
 Temporary files for idnsZone objects are now inside master/ subdirectory.
 Temporary directories are created with ug=rwx,o= permissions to enable
POSIX ACL usage.
 Naming rules for working directories have changed: See README section 6.
 Documentation clearly states that idnsZoneActive attribute is not supported.
== Upgrading ==
A server can be upgraded by installing updated RPM. BIND has to be restarted
manually after the RPM installation.
!!! CAUTION !!!

and update idnsForwarders and idnsForward policy attributes in your DNS zones
Transition from idnsZone to idnsForwardZone object class can be made seamless
if you change data in LDAP before you upgrade to version 5.x. All
bind-dyndb-ldap versions >= 3.0 support the idnsForwardZone object class.
Users of FreeIPA < 4.0 should be careful when upgrading bind-dyndb-ldap to
version >= 5.0 (if they do not upgrade to FreeIPA 4.x at the same time).
Configuration semantics related to conditional (per-zone) forwarding has
changed and FreeIPA < 4.0 doesn't have appropriate user interface and API.
It is safe to upgrade if you use *only* global forwarders (shown by 'ipa
dnsconfig-show') and *do not* use per-zone forwarders (shown by 'ipa
Don't hesitate to ask freeipa-users mailing list if you need help with upgrade.
!!! CAUTION !!!
Downgrading back to any 4.x version is supported.
