Net::DNS::SEC 0.21 released

We have a new Net::DNS::SEC release: 0.21.

This is again a single bugfix release, rt.cpan.org #99250, that restores canonicalization of a RRSIG’s Signer Name before performing validation.

Besides this fix, this release also corrects a few declaration with statement modifier occasions, as pointed out in rt.cpan.org #99527.

Package maintainers beware! Net::DNS::SEC::Private has always had an implicit dependency on Crypt::OpenSSL::Random. This dependency has been made explicit in this release; both in the use statements in Private.pm as in the PREREQ_PM list in Makefile.PL. Private.pm will no longer load if Crypt::OpenSSL::Random is not available.

Because of the smallness, but importance, of the change we consider it safe and acceptable to shorten the release cycle and do a full release immediately.

Net::DNS 0.80 released

I am pleased to announce version 0.80 of Net::DNS.

In this release a single bug is fixed; The “Too late to run INIT block …” warnings that appeared when “requiring” Net::DNS, instead of “using”, are once again suppressed. The INIT block has no effect on Net::DNS operation and is only necessary for Net::DNS::SEC test scripts.

Besides this bug fix, Net::DNS::Resolver can now be forced to use IPv6 only with the force_v6 method.

Also documentation of Net::DNS::Resolver has been tidied, improved and complemented with missing subjects.

To make cygwin installations more predictable and robust, Win32::IPHelper support for cygwin has been removed. Resolver objects are now based on the cygwin specific base class always.

Release candidate for Net::DNS 0.80

We have a candidate for the upcoming single-bugfix release 0.80 of Net::DNS.

With this release the “Too late to run INIT block …” warnings that appear when “requiring” Net::DNS, instead of “using”, are once again suppressed. The INIT block has no effect on Net::DNS operation and is only necessary for Net::DNS::SEC test scripts.

Besides this bugfix, Net::DNS::Resolver can now besides being forced to use IPv4 only, also be forced to use IPv6 only with the force_v6 method. Also documentation of Net::DNS::Resolver has been tidied.

To make cygwin installations more predictable and robust, Win32::IPHelper support for cygwin has been removed.  Resolver objects are now based on the cygwin specific base class always.

If no issues arise, the actual release will follow Monday the 22th of September 2014.

Net::DNS 0.79 released

I am pleased to announce version 0.79 of Net::DNS.

This is a bugfix release.

Besides bugfixes this release introduces a resolver class for the android OS.

Also an implementation of the draft OPENPGPKEY RR is within this release. Beware that the specification for this RR is still draft and is subject to change. The behaviour and/or interface of this implementation may also change. Use for experimentation only!

Also, the recursive resolver Net::DNS::Resolver::Recurse has received a complete rework to make it a) always terminate, b) work properly and c) not make too many unnecessary requests. It now also provides recursive resolving through the conventional query, search and send methods.
