The <firstname.lastname@example.org> mailing list was once again of great help; this release would not be nearly as ready for prime time if not for their efforts. Special commendations are owed to Robert Elz, Don "Truck" Lewis, Bob Halley, Mark Andrews, Berthold Paffrath, Ruediger Volk, and Peter Koch.
Digital Equipment Corporation, Hewlett Packard, Silicon Graphics, and SunSoft all made hardware available for integration testing; this made the release far more solid than it would otherwise have been. More hardware loans are welcome -- if you are a system vendor and you would like BIND to run ``out of the box'' on your platform and are willing to lend some rusty old hardware for the purpose, please contact me (<email@example.com>) to make the arrangements.
Special thanks to the Internet Software Consortium for funding this work. Contact <firstname.lastname@example.org> if your organization would like to participate in funding future releases of BIND and other freely redistributable software packages that are in wide use on the Internet.
