The ISC released both bind 9.2.4 and bind 9.3.0 on 2004-09-23.
Bind 9.2.4 is in the FC development tree; bind 9.3.0 is not.
If it's too late to consider putting bind 9.3.0 in FC3, could we at
least have it in the development tree? I think as much advance
exposure to bind 9.3.0 as possible would be a Good Thing.
Totally agreed. Please consider upgrading to 9.3.0 before FC3. It's
the only version which implements the future DNSSEC specs and has the
ability to bind to a specific IPv6 interface.
BIND 9.2.4 (final version) will be in Fedora Core Test 3 (FC3t3)
and Enterprise Linux 4 Beta 2 (RHEL-4-B2).
As soon as these projects have both frozen (around Oct 13th) I
will submit bind-9.3.0 to the FC3 development tree.
There is not sufficient time for full testing of 9.3.0 for our GA
Meanwhile, I will work on getting a "beta-test" BIND-9.3.0 RPM done
today, which will be available at :
OK, great. Will test 9.3.0 RPMs here on my name servers.
This is now done. You can download bind-9.3.0-1_beta from :
The srpm is at:
I have built the binary packages for the i386 platform which are here:
These were built under the latest rawhide release of today(20040827).
If you need the packages for a different platform, download the srpm
and build it with:
rpmbuild --rebuild bind-9.3.0-1_beta.src.rpm
Then install the resulting rpms which will be in
When comparing 9.2.3-5 Fedora RPMs to your 9.3.0 beta, two utils
are missing in the "bind" subpackage:
Also, bind-utils doesn't contain the resolver.5 manpage anymore, I
guess this is now where it belongs (glibc)?
Now on to some production server tests...

Thanks for the link to the beta rpm! This will work for me until
RHEL-4 is released.
Could bind 9.3.0 pushed to Fedora Development, please?
The production server tests on two nameservers here went fine, no
problems whatsoever, running dual-stack IPv4/IPv6 for two months now.
bind-9.3.0-1 is now in FC4 / Rawhide, and is available for FC2 and FC3
by download from:
Confirmed that bind 9.3.0 is in FC development; closing.
