Internet Systems Consortium Reports Completion of BIND 10 Initial Development Program

February 5, 2014

Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) announced the completion of a multi-year software development program funded by JPRS and other key sponsors.

The next generation nameserver software framework is available as the BIND 10 distribution, which has been well received by sponsors and the open source community.

"We are proud to have been able to work closely with our sponsors to deliver quality nameserver software as freely available open source," stated Jeff Osborn, ISC Executive Director. "It also marks the conclusion of a multi-year development program funded by our generous sponsors. We look forward to continuing development on the BIND 10 suite with continued guidance from our broad BIND and ISC DHCP user base."

According to a release, throughout this development effort, JPRS and other key sponsors have provided development staff as well as funding. The collaborative effort provided valuable insights to all involved. The result of the initial development program of BIND 10 is a production release of authoritative nameserver software.

Downloads of the BIND 10 Authoritative nameserver software from the ISC website continue to increase. During the past few months, BIND 10 has accounted for more than 12 percent of the total downloads from the isc.org website. Feedback from those users will ensure that development continues in the right direction as the software becomes widely tested and later deployed in production.

ISC has been privileged to have support from numerous sponsors during the BIND 10 development effort.

Internet Systems Consortium (ISC) is a 501(c)3 public benefit corporation known for Internet software engineering and network operations.
