New patches and new versions of the existing RRL patches can be
found through the link labeled "Patch files for BIND9" on

The new patches are for the recent BIND 9.9.3 and BIND 9.8.5 releases.

The new versions of the existing patches:

  - address the issue raised by Bob Harold. RRL on recursive servers
     applies rate limits after waiting for recursion except on
     sub-domains of domains for which the server is authoritative.

  - fix the bug reported by Roy Arends in which "slipped" NXDOMAIN
     responses had rcode values of 0 (NoError) instead of 3 (NXDOMAIN).

  - move reports of RRL drop and slip actions from the "queries"
     log category to the "query-errors" category. Because they are not
     in the "queres" category, enabling or disabling query logging no
     longer affects them.
