I have updated the default root hints that ship inside the source code
of Unbound (in the code repository, for future releases).  Thank you for
the notification.

Users can upgrade the root hints right now by editing the named.root (or
named.cache, or root.hints file) and using the root-hints: "filename"
directive in unbound.conf.  Or they can wait for a source code upgrade
if they are using defaults.

Best regards, Wouter
