It kind of annoying, because the SOA serial is stuck in the middle of 
the SOA record that is stored textually in the records table - so I 
can't easily automate it. In moving to power dns, I was hoping to get 
rid of all the specially crafted text parsing that had to be done to 
manage bind domains, and apparently that is not the case.

Thanks for the answers.

I'll have to roll my own RPM for this, as this is high priority for me 
and I can't wait for my distro to bundle a new version - I was hoping I 
wont have to do this.

Any idea when will 2.9.20 be released ?
