BIND 9.9.0a2 is the second alpha development release for BIND 9.9.

BIND 9.9 includes a number of changes from BIND 9.8 and earlier
releases. New features include:

- NXDOMAIN redirection.
- Improved scalability from using multiple threads to
listen for queries.
- New 'rndc flushtree' command clears all data under a
given name from the DNS cache.
- New 'rndc sync' command dumps pending changes in a
dynamic zone to disk without a freeze/thaw cycle.
- The 'also-notify' option now takes the same syntax as
'masters', so it can used named masterlists and TSIG
- 'auto-dnssec' zones can now have NSEC3 parameters set
prior to signing.
- 'dnssec-signzone -D' writes an output file containing
only DNSSEC data, which can be included by the primary
zone file.
- 'dnssec-signzone -R' forces removal of signatures that
are not expired but were created by a key which no longer
- 'dnssec-signzone -X' allows a separate expiration date to
be specified for DNSKEY signatures from other signatures.
- New '-L' option to dnssec-keygen, dnssec-settime, and
dnssec-keyfromlabel sets the default TTL for the key.
- dnssec-dsfromkey now supports reading from standard
input, to make it easier to convert DNSKEY to DS.
- RFC 1918 reverse zones have been added to the empty-zones
table per RFC 6303.
- Dynamic updates can now optionally set the zone's SOA
serial number to the current UNIX time.
