That's the exact same as I get. I'm still showing 1.16.1-1 as well.

This is not for everyone, but if you have skills you can compile Unbound yourself. I was in this situation about 2 years ago. Since I also have Synology NAS I decided to host my own Unbound in a docker conatiner. I will never go back.

I ran Unbound for a little while on a Rpi 4 running Raspbian. I missed the ease of unbound_manager and went back to running on my AC88U.
IMHO, the ease of unbound_manager is worth being a little behind in the release cadence of Unbound.

I never understood "the ease" explanation. Unbound has such rich commands and documentation that I cannot explain why you would even need simpler approach. About the updates... if you care about security you want to be on most current versions, especially for DNS server. Important CVE's should be applied immediately, not weeks or months later.

Also, the problem with coding a layer (Menu) on to of Unbound or for that matter any utilities/programs is that it robs you from learning and debugging if issues do happen. You also need to keep this updated as Unbound adds new commands and functionality. This is unnecessary.
