BIND 9.3.0beta2 is now available.



		BIND 9.3.0beta2 is now available.

BIND 9.3.0beta2 is a beta release candidate for BIND 9.3.

        BIND 9.3.0 has a number of new features over 9.2,
        including:

        DNSSEC is now DS based.
        See doc/draft/draft-ietf-dnsext-dnssec-*

        DNSSEC lookaside validation (experimental).

        check-names is now implemented.
        rrset-order in more complete.

        IPv4/IPv6 transition support, dual-stack-servers.

        IXFR deltas can now be generated when loading master files,
        ixfr-from-differences.

        It is now possible to specify the size of a journal, max-journal-size.

        It is now possible to define a named set of master servers to be
        used in masters clause, masters.

        The advertised EDNS UDP size can now be set, edns-udp-size.

        allow-v6-synthesis has been obsoleted.

        NOTE:
        * Zones containing MD and MF will now be rejected.
        * dig, nslookup name. now report "Not Implemented" as
          NOTIMP rather than NOTIMPL.  This will have impact on scripts
          that are looking for NOTIMPL.

        libbind: corresponds to that from BIND 8.4.5.

KNOWN ISSUES:

	Fencepost errors in dns_name_ishostname() and dns_name_ismailbox()
	could trigger a INSIST().  Apply patch1 to address this issue.

	When specifying check-names at the view/options level you
	need to specify all of master, slave and response.  This
	will be fixed in the next beta.

	Builds will fail on machines w/o if_nametoindex().  Missing
	#ifdef ISC_PLATFORM_HAVEIFNAMETOINDEX/#endif.
