Net::DNS::SEC 1.04 Released

Dear all,

We have a new release version 1.04 of Net::DNS::SEC.

Net::DNS::SEC is dependent on the Crypt::OpenSSL::(DSA|EDSA|RSA) modules for the cryptographic operations. Unfortunately these modules have not remained up-to-date with the underlying OpenSSL C library and are now non functional with OpenSSL releases from version 1.1.0 and higher.

This release contains a Perl foreign function interface on the OpenSSL libcrypto library directly and is no longer dependent on the Crypt::OpenSSL::(DSA|EDSA|RSA) modules, providing more flexibility in OpenSSL upgrade strategies.

Net::DNS 1.15 Released

Dear all,

We have a new release version 1.15 of Net::DNS.

This release has no bugs resolved nor any new features. Besides some minor code maintenance, this release only adds a Change notice to formalize the retirement of the GOST R 34.11-94 hash algorithm. However, the GOST algorithm will still work when a functional Digest::GOST module is present.

See also the Changes file.

Release candidate for Net::DNS::SEC 1.04

Dear all,

We have a candidate for the 1.04 release of Net::DNS::SEC.

Net::DNS::SEC is dependent on the Crypt::OpenSSL::(DSA|ECDSA|RSA) modules for the cryptographic operations. Unfortunately these modules have not remained up-to-date with the underlying OpenSSL C library and are now non functional with OpenSSL releases from version 1.1.0 and higher.

This release contains a Perl foreign function interface on the OpenSSL libcrypto library directly and is no longer dependent on the Crypt::OpenSSL::(DSA|ECDSA|RSA) modules, providing more flexibility in OpenSSL upgrade strategies.

This is a non trivial architectural change. Therefore we ask you to review this candidate extra thoroughly. If no issues arise, the actual release will follow Wednesday the 14 February 2018.

Release candidate for Net::DNS 1.14

Dear all,

We have a candidate for the upcoming 1.14 release of Net::DNS.

This release resolves an issue with inaccessibility of (sub)packages from .pm files containing more than one packages, due to changed file permissions caused by dropped or changed user permissions by a program.

Besides this issue, this release also expresses more clearly that the Net::DNS::Nameserver module is not, nor will ever be, a general-purpose DNS nameserver implementation.

Functionality of Net::DNS::Nameserver has been extended to have a default ReplyHandler that will serve a zone given with a ZoneFile optional argument to the constructor.

See also the Changes file.

Please review this candidate carefully. If no issues arise, the actual release will follow Thursday the 14th of December 2017.

Net::DNS 1.12 Released

Dear all,

We have a new bugfix release version 1.12 of Net::DNS.

This release contains bugfixes for:

  • An issue with false timeouts reported with persistent UDP, and
  • an issue with stalling TCP retries with IO::Socket::IP versions before. 0.38

This release also incorporates the printing and parsing of CDS and CDNSKEY as specified by erratum 5049 for RFC8078.

This release will emit a preliminary warning at build time about our intention to drop support for IO::Socket::INET6 in favour of the IO::Socket::IP module. When or how or even whether this will happen is still to be determined. Feedback and suggestions on this are welcomed.

See also the Changes file.

Net::DNS 1.11 Released

Dear all,

We have a new release version 1.11 of Net::DNS.

This release contains mostly maintenance work, which involved among other things:

  • A Net::DNS::Resolver class for OS/390 MVS
  • Work on configuration of Net::DNS::Resolver objects:
    • prefer_v4/prefer_v6 is no longer a binary choice. Expressing no preference leaves nameservers in the order stated
    • Parsing and adhering to ndots option
  • A workaround for strict hashpairs with cperl >= 5.27
  • Zeroed waiting period with bgbusy(), and
  • The ability to send UDP queries with EDNS bufsize set to 512
