Dear Colleagues,

NLnet Labs is proud to announce the release of its Name Server Daemon,

NSD is an authoritative RFC compliant DNS nameserver. It was ?rst
conceived to allow for more genetic diversity for DNS server
implementations used by the root-server system and it has been developed
for operations in environments where speed, reliability, stability, and
security are of high importance. NSD is currently used on root servers
such as k.root-servers.net and is also in use by several top-level
domains registries.

NSD3 is the successor of NSD2 which has been extended to include support
for incremental zone updates (IXFR), incoming and outgoing NOTIFY
messages, and for DNAME. NSD3 can run as a secondary DNS server with RFC
compliant timing, with no user-configured cron jobs needed, as was the
case for NSD2. Besides, NSD3 has been made more stable by the redesign
of its internal messaging system.  NSD3 can now be configured with a
configuration file.

NSD3 is still authoritative only, open source and strives to be
compliant with the relevant RFCs.

More detailed information can be found on the NSD website,
http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/nsd. For specific release notes see
NLnet Labs is committed to support NSD and its other software products
on a best effort basis, free of charge. This form of community support
is offered through a mailing lists and the ?bugzilla? web interface. If
for any reason NLnet Labs would stop community support of NSD such would
be announced on our web pages at least two years in advance.

We recognize that in some corporate environments this commitment to
community support is not sufficient and that support needs to be
codi?ed. We therefore offer paid support contracts. More information can
be found at http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/nsd/support.html.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Kind regards,

the NSD team.
