At our June meeting, Cricket Liu, author of O'Reilly's book DNS & BIND, presented the new features of BIND 8.2.2-P5, the latest released version of BIND and hints about the new features in BIND 8.2.3 and 9.0.0. The new features he discussed include enhanced forwarding, incremental zone transfer, a new version of ndc, the name daemon controller, and configurable RRset order.

Cricket Liu is the co-author of both of O'Reilly & Associates Nutshell Handbooks on the Domain Name System, DNS and BIND and DNS on Windows NT, and is the principal author of Managing Internet Information Services. Cricket worked for five and a half years at Hewlett-Packard's Corporate Network Services, where he ran, one of the largest corporate domains in the world, and helped design the HP Internet's security architecture. He later joined HP's consulting organization to found their Internet consulting business.

Cricket left HP in 1997 to start his own company, Acme Byte & Wire with his friend and co-author Matt Larson. Acme Byte & Wire specializes in consulting and training on the Domain Name System, including both the BIND and Microsoft DNS Server implementations. Acme Byte & Wire's customers include over 10% of Fortune 100 companies. Currently, Cricket is working on the fourth edition of DNS and BIND.
