BIND 9.6-ESV-R11b1 is the first beta release of BIND 9.6-ESV-R11.
BIND 9.6-ESV is an Extended Support Version of BIND. The BIND 9.6-ESV branch will reach its End of Life on January 1, 2014. There will be no further bug fixes to it of any kind and BIND 9.6-ESV-R11 will be our final release version of the 9.6 releases. We recommend that you plan your upgrade to BIND 9.9.4 or higher. BIND 9.9 is our current ESV Extended Support Version and will be supported for three more years.
