BIND 9.11.0 includes a number of changes from BIND 9.10 and earlier
releases. New features include:
- Added nsip-wait-recurse switch to rpz.
- Added python RNDC module.
- Added support for Catalog Zones, a new method for provisioning
servers: a list of zones to be served is stored in a DNS zone,
along with their configuration parameters. Changes to the
catalog zone are propagated to slaves via normal AXFR/IXFR,
whereupon the zones that are listed in it are automatically
added, deleted or reconfigured.
- Added support for "dnstap", a fast and flexible method of
capturing and logging DNS traffic.
- Added support for "dyndb", a new API for loading zone data

This can reduce the frequency of retries when a query is
persistently failing.
- Added an "nsip-wait-recurse" switch to RPZ. This causes NSIP
rules to be skipped if a name server IP address isn't in the
cache yet; the address will be looked up and the rule will be
applied on future queries.
- Added a Python RNDC module. This allows multiple commands to
sent over a persistent RNDC channel, which saves time.
- The "controls" block in named.conf can now grant read-only

could, for example, check "rndc status" but could not

remove these records at the scheduled times.
- A new "minimal-any" option reduces the size of UDP responses
for query type ANY by returning a single arbitrarily selected
RRset instead of all RRsets.
- A new "masterfile-style" zone option controls the formatting
of text zone files: When set to "full", a zone file is dumped
in single-line-per-record format.
