    BIND 9.4.2-P2-W1 is now available.

    This is a WINDOWS-SPECIFIC update to the second security patch for BIND
    9.4.2. It addresses long-standing scalability issues in the socket code
    for Windows that were exposed by the changes in BIND 9.4.2-P1 and -P2.

    This release contains no code changes that are not specific to the Windows
    operating system. It will compile and run correctly on all supported
    platforms, but there is no need to upgrade from P2 to P2-W1 unless you
    are running BIND on Windows.

    NOTE: Effective immediately, the Windows 2000 and Windows NT operating
    systems are no longer supported. This release has been tested and is
    supported on Windows 2003, Windows XP, and Windows 2008.

    BIND 9.4.2-P2-W1 can be downloaded from

    ftp://ftp.isc.org/isc/bind9/9.4.2-P2...2-P2-W1.tar.gz

    Changes since 9.4.2-P2:

    --- 9.4.2-P2-W1 released ---

    2432. [bug] More Windows socket handling improvements. Stop
    using I/O events and use IO Completion Ports
    throughout. Rewrite the receive path logic to make
    it easier to support multiple simultaneous
    requestrs in the future. Add stricter consistency
    checking as a compile-time option (define
    ISC_SOCKET_CONSISTENCY_CHECKS; defaults to off).

    2420. [bug] Windows socket handling cleanup. Let the io
    completion event send out cancelled read/write
    done events, which keeps us from writing to memeory
    we no longer have ownership of. Add debugging
    socket_log() function. Rework TCP socket handling
    to not leak sockets.

  2. Re: ISC BIND 9.4.2-P2-W1 is now available

    And what about BIND 0.5.0 P2 and the bug that crashes named.exe?

    Is there a patched version too?
