[4] Options cache_ttl, psearch and zone_refresh were formally deprecated.

[5] Autotools should work on aarch64 (ARM64).

== 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
- record types not supported by 2.x versions are not utilized
- configured connection count is >= 3 (to prevent deadlocks in 2.x releases)

== Important change planned for 4.0 release ==

Configurations with and without persistent search are now deprecated. Support for 'zone_refresh' and 'psearch' options will be removed in 4.0 release.

Bind-dyndb-ldap 4.0 will require LDAP server with support for RFC 4533.
