The only updates I've seen to BIND in recent years were security-related,
not functionality. Yeah, I could switch to another DNS server, but like
Sendmail vs. Postfix[*] it's better the devil you know etc...
That said, if I had to set up a brand new server then it would be in
parallel with the old one for a while, serving a different set of domains
so that I won't care if I screw things up (I've got quite a few domains
that I could subscribe to existing lists in parallel).
And I won't even consider switching to EMACS from VI :-)
