BIND 9 Past, Present, and Future

The future is scary. But you can't just run back to the past because it's familiar.

BIND 9 is now 17 years old, the latest stable version 9.12 was releases in December and the BIND 9 Team has adopted changes to adapt to the ever change Internet landscape.

In this talk, I will present BIND 9 colorful past, the current state of development, and the changes that BIND 9 Team has adopted to cope with modern DNS. I will talk about the changes in the development model, release cycles, and also about the planned features that will help BIND 9 Team to be more nimble in adding new features, fixing old issues, spending less time on maintenance, while ensuring the stability for existing users. I believe that existing BIND 9 users will be thrilled.
