Submission + - Two big changes in the DNS root today (

An anonymous reader writes: Today, two big things have happened to the DNS root zone. Firstly, the first internationalised domain names were made live. They are three Arabic top-level domains for Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Secondly, the last of the root servers was switched over to DNSSEC, meaning that the root zone is now fully served as signed. Final deployment of DNSSEC at the root zone is expected to be finished in the coming months.
