Hi Massimo,

9.12.4 is newer, good
but does it need the zone files to be modified?

Probably not, but I am not a bind expert and I don't maintain my own bind
9.11.37 received security fixes until mar 2022
9.12 until jun 2019 (EOL)

This was discussed back in 2019 when Paul did the 9.12 build. 9.11 was an
ESV release and 9.12 was not.  Paul agreed with my suggestion that we
focus on 9.11 since it was going to get long term support.

It appears that ISC changed its release policy a couple of years ago and
it appears that 9.11 may have gotten some addtional years of support

Paul mentioned some issues attemping to build 9.16 and other projects got

IMO, if someone feels the need for a newer bind ESV build, he/she should
discuss this with Paul and be prepared to commit to assisting with the
required testing to get it stabilized.


ok, if 9.11.37 can be stabilized
right now it's completely over

it neither answer requests and the process is unkillable, so server must be rebooted

The build in that ticket fixes the issue for me.



as wrote in the ticket (email notify didn't arrive), it seems to work well
but let's wait at least some days to confirm if it's stable etc.
