Since some update few weeks back named crashes (segfault) on weekly basis. I've never had so many crashes in the last 15+ years.
According to ISC release notes, 9.13 is considered unstable. Could we revert to a stable version or perhaps create a separate package?

Here is one of the many crashes if interested

Bind 9.14 the next stable is due to be released in two weeks
Have you contacted upstream about your issues with 9.13 which will become 9.14?

Thanks for the reply. I have not contacted upstream. I don't intend to join bind development and beta testing. I do care for stable release within the arch linux package system. When 9.14 comes out, we can expect 9.15 (unstable) to follow shortly. Will the arch linux package jump to the unstable version or remain at stable?
Comment by loqs (loqs) - Monday, 04 February 2019, 19:41 GMT staying on 9.14
There is a high change your issue will also be present in 9.14 if it was present in 9.13.5-2 - 9.13.5-4.
