Major DNS Update

A lot of discussion is going on around yesterday major DNS upgrade push
Is it needed, is it overkill, are we fixing a new hot flaw or just reiterating over a 4 year old RFC

Yes Dan from DJB DNS already told us ages ago .. but Dan isn't the most loved person on the planet. Now as long as he doesn't head in the direction of that other unpopular filesystem guy :)

Anyhow .. CVS information is here and you can read up on some more background at Securosis

Add to that the fresh release of Unbound and security is back in style just like Chris Hoff said during the VirtSec debate :

“To me, security is like bell bottoms, every 10-15 years or so, it comes back into style.”
