Notes for BIND 9.16.11
Feature Changes

    The new networking code introduced in BIND 9.16 (netmgr) was overhauled in order to make it more stable, testable, and maintainable. [GL #2321]

    Earlier releases of BIND versions 9.16 and newer required the operating system to support load-balanced sockets in order for named to be able to achieve high performance (by distributing incoming queries among multiple threads). However, the only operating systems currently known to support load-balanced sockets are Linux and FreeBSD 12, which means both UDP and TCP performance were limited to a single thread on other systems. As of BIND 9.17.8, named attempts to distribute incoming queries among multiple threads on systems which lack support for load-balanced sockets (except Windows). [GL #2137]

    It is now possible to transition a zone from secure to insecure mode without making it bogus in the process; changing to dnssec-policy none; also causes CDS and CDNSKEY DELETE records to be published, to signal that the entire DS RRset at the parent must be removed, as described in RFC 8078. [GL #1750]

    When using the unixtime or date method to update the SOA serial number, named and dnssec-signzone silently fell back to the increment method to prevent the new serial number from being smaller than the old serial number (using serial number arithmetics). dnssec-signzone now prints a warning message, and named logs a warning, when such a fallback happens. [GL #2058]

Bug Fixes

    Multiple threads could attempt to destroy a single RBTDB instance at the same time, resulting in an unpredictable but low-probability assertion failure in free_rbtdb(). This has been fixed. [GL #2317]

    named no longer attempts to assign threads to CPUs outside the CPU affinity set. Thanks to Ole Bjørn Hessen. [GL #2245]

    When reconfiguring named, removing auto-dnssec did not turn off DNSSEC maintenance. This has been fixed. [GL #2341]

    The report of intermittent BIND assertion failures triggered in lib/dns/resolver.c:dns_name_issubdomain() has now been closed without further action. Our initial response to this was to add diagnostic logging instead of terminating named, anticipating that we would receive further useful troubleshooting input. This workaround first appeared in BIND releases 9.17.5 and 9.16.7. However, since those releases were published, there have been no new reports of assertion failures matching this issue, but also no further diagnostic input, so we have closed the issue. [GL #2091]
