No disrespect taken. The README for 8.2.3 says: Note that BIND 8 is in "end-of-life", having been replaced by BIND 9. See http://www.isc.org/ for more details. And indeed, BIND 9 has been in preparation for several years, has been in an extended test release phase for the last 6 or 8 months, and with the release of 9.1.0 a few weeks ago, is a far better choice than BIND 8.2.3 for most systems. It's also compatible with BIND 8's configuration file syntax. BIND 9's server shares not a single line of code with BIND 8's. So if genetic diversity is what's worrying anybody, please check out BIND 9.1.0. But if you just want the BIND 8 you already have (except, without certain security flaws) then BIND 8.2.3 is just what you need.
