Hello Pavel,

We are currently shifting priorities in order to crank up the work on NSD4.0 it is not very likely that you will see a production release before end of year, albeit not impossible either.

During the development process working snapshots (working, but with limited functionality) will be published in SVN (See http://www.nlnetlabs.nl/svn/nsd/tags/ ). Obviously these snapshots are for the daring among you who want to help us test in real world environments.

Currently we are at snapshot 5. Now that might not mean a lot but we have accomplished a few things:

* Performance increase with radixtree and more optimal compilation.
* UDB on disk, removal of zonec. This means using editable disk database with mmap.
* NSEC3 prehash incremental
* Patterns, new config file structures to manage many zones
* Control, SSL remote control: output statistics, force zone transfer, add and remove zones.

The above is a cut-n-paste from internal notes and may not mean very much. However, while maintaining the (stable) NSD3 query logic we improved performance and added features that folk have been waiting for: Addition and removal of zones without the need of a restart. 

If you are daring to run the snapshot we appreciate any feedback you may have.

Keep you posted,


Olaf M. Kolkman
