Net::DNS 1.18 released

Dear all,

We have new release version 1.18 of Net::DNS.

This release includes

  • Updated root hints, with the new IP address for b.root-servers.net.
  • A bugfix for failing Net::DNS::ZoneFile->parse() when an include directory was specified.
  • A bugfix for broken resolution when /etc/resolv.conf had an ndots option.
  • A change in terminology: A DNS reply is not called “answer” anymore to avoid disambiguate. This change applies to a few function names too:
    • Net::DNS::Packet::from() replaces answerfrom()
    • Net::DNS::Packet::size() replaces answersize()
    • Net::DNS::Resolver::replyfrom() replaces answerfrom().

    The old function names will remain for backwards compatibility.

  • Overall improved documentation

Net::DNS Released

Dear all,

We have a new release version 1.16 of Net::DNS.

This release contains new and improved methods for NSEC and NSEC3 RRs to enquery about the name it covers, the types in its typemap, and in case of NSEC3 about the encloser, nextcloser and (unexpanded) wildcard.

Also, IPv6 support is from now only with the IO::Socket::IP module. Support for the IO::Socket::INET6 is removed (for which we have warned about since 1.12).

See also the Changes file.

Net::DNS::SEC 1.09 released

Dear all,

We are pleased to announce the 1.09 release of Net::DNS::SEC.

Code has been reworked to anticipate the proposed removal of some features in future versions of OpenSSL, but is otherwise functionally identical to 1.08.

Test scripts have been modified to avoid filename conflicts which arise when tests are executed in parallel.

For a complete list of changes and bugfixes see the CHANGES file.

Net::DNS::SEC 1.08 released

Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the 1.08 release of Net::DNS::SEC.

Code has been reworked to generate and verify signatures using the EVP interface which requires OpenSSL 1.0.0 or later.

Use of ED25519 and ED448 (algorithms 15 and 16) requires OpenSSL 1.1.1 or later.

ECC-GOST (obsolete GOST R 34.10-2001) signature verification requires the Digest::GOST package to be installed. The signature generation function has been removed.
