Branch: pkgsrc-2008Q2, Version: 9.5.0pl2, Package name: bind-9.5.0pl2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

BIND, the Berkeley Internet Name Daemon, version 9 is a major rewrite
of nearly all aspects of the underlying BIND architecture. Some
of the important features of BIND-9 are:

- DNS Security
DNSSEC (signed zones)
TSIG (signed DNS requests)

- IP version 6
Answers DNS queries on IPv6 sockets
IPv6 resource records (A6, DNAME, etc.)
Bitstring Labels
Experimental IPv6 Resolver Library

- DNS Protocol Enhancements
Improved standards conformance

- Views
One server process can provide multiple "views" of the
DNS namespace to different clients.

- Multiprocessor Support
- Improved Portability Architecture

   Log message:
   Changes since 9.5.0-P1:

   	--- 9.5.0-P2 released ---

   2406.   [bug]           Some operating systems have FD_SETSIZE set to a
   			low value by default, which can cause resource
   			exhaustion when many simultaneous connections are
   			open.  Linux in particular makes it difficult to
   			increase this value.  To use more sockets with
   			select(), set ISC_SOCKET_FDSETSIZE.  Example:
   			STD_CDEFINES="-DISC_SOCKET_FDSETSIZE=4096" ./configure
   			(This should not be necessary in most cases, and
   			never for an authoritative-only server.) [RT #18328]

   2405.   [cleanup]       The default value for dnssec-validation was changed to
   			"yes" in 9.5.0-P1 and all subsequent releases; this
   			was inadvertently omitted from CHANGES at the time.

   2404.	[port]		hpux: files unlimited support.

   2403.	[bug]		TSIG context leak. [RT #18341]

   2402.	[port]		Support Solaris 2.11 and over. [RT #18362]

   2401.	[bug]		Expect to get E[MN]FILE errno internal_accept()
   			(from accept() or fcntl() system calls). [RT #18358]

   2399.	[bug]		Abort timeout queries to reduce the number of open
   			UDP sockets. [RT #18367]

   2398.	[bug]           Improve file descriptor management.  New,
   			temporary, named.conf option reserved-sockets,
   			default 512. [RT #18344]

   2397.	[bug]		gssapi_functions had too many elements. [RT #18355]

   2396.	[bug]		Don't set SO_REUSEADDR for randomized ports.
   			[RT #18336]

   2395.	[port]		Avoid warning and no effect from "files unlimited"
   			on Linux when running as root. [RT #18335]

   2394.	[bug]		Default configuration options set the limit for
   			open files to 'unlimited' as described in the
   			documentation. [RT #18331]

   2393.   [bug]           nested acls containing keys could trigger an
   			assertion in acl.c. [RT #18166]

   2392.	[bug]		remove 'grep -q' from acl test script, some platforms
   			don't support it. [RT #18253]

   2387.	[bug]		Silence compiler warnings in lib/isc/radix.c.
