First signed root zone published

I am pleased to report that the first fully validatable production
signed root zone, with SOA serial number 2010071501, was published and
began rolling out to the root servers at 1625 UTC.

More details to follow in a formal update.

...on behalf of the root DNSSEC design team

Make that 1650 UTC...

(The perils of staging email.)

Make that 2050 UTC (1650 EDT).

(The perils of a stressful deployment and time zone conversion.)
