This email is to inform you of release '8.3.2' of 'bind' through
freshmeat.net. All URLs and other useful information can be found at
The changes in this release are as follows:
The IPv6 support in dig, nslookup, host, and nsupdate has been
improved. A critical bugfix was made to prevent DNS storms. If you
are using BIND 8.3.0, then you need to upgrade. Note that all 8.x
versions of BIND are deprecated in favor of BIND 9.2.1. If you must
run BIND 8, use nothing earlier than 8.2.5-REL or 8.3.2-REL. Do not
run BIND 4 under any circumstances.
The Berkeley Internet Name Domain (BIND) implements an Internet name
server for Unix operating systems. The BIND consists of a server (or
`daemon') called `named' and a resolver library. A name server is a
network service that enables clients to name resources or objects and
share this information with other objects in the network.
