BIND 10 development started

The Internet Systems Consortium announced today that development on the next generation of BIND DNS Server has started. The new development is sponsored by many TLD-Registries (Japan Registry Services Co., Ltd. (JPRS) and Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) as well as Afilias, AFNIC, DENIC, IIS.SE, Nominet, NIC.br, SIDN and .za Domain Name Authority) and will take some years to complete.

The new BIND Software is planned to be more modular (so that users can choose to include or exclude certain functions during compile time or even runtime), with build in support for clusterization. The new BIND 10 will have interfaces that will plug into monitoring and configuration systems for centralizen management of a BIND DNS Server infrastructure. Configuration can be controlled more fine grained during runtime as in todays BIND 9. Also, the new BIND Server is planned to be more resillient on error conditions, to not stop operation completely on error but will try to recovery gracefully and resume operation if possible.
