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.

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

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.

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

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.

Net::DNS::SEC 0.20 released

I am pleased to announce version 0.20 of Net::DNS::SEC.

This release has only a single bugfix, rt.cpan.org #97457, which reestablished parsing of ‘-‘ salt fields in NSEC3 presentation format representing zero salt.

Because of the smallness of the change (only one and a half lines of code) we consider it safe and acceptable shorten the release cycle and do a full release immediately.

Net::DNS 0.77 released

I am pleased to announce version 0.77 of Net::DNS.

This release is primarily concerned with fixing some regressions that have arisen since the 0.75 and 0.76 release. It has the axfr_start and axfr_next functions of Net::DNS::Resolver restored.

Net::DNS::Resolver::axfr in scalar context now returns an iterator interface to provide gradual reception with zone transfers.

Also processing of resolver configuration directives has been improved to be more robust, sensible and secure. An initial instantiation will set the class defaults always, so that subsequent instantiations – without explicit config_file argument or other overrides – will use those defaults and will not start processing environment variables or insecure locations for config files.

Quickfix release candidate for Net::DNS 0.77

We have a candidate for the upcoming quickfix release 0.77 of Net::DNS.

In the upcoming release the former Net::DNS::Resolver documented API functions axfr_start and axfr_next, that had been removed, are recovered. As an alternative to those functions the axfr() function now also offers an iterator interface to provide gradual reception with zone transfers.

Also some regressions that have arisen after the 0.75 and 0.76 release are fixed.

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

If no issues arise, the actual release will follow the 11th of June 2014.

Net::DNS::SEC 0.19 Quickfix release

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

In the previous release, the previously documented API function Net::DNS::RR::DNSKEY::is_sep printed a message stating the function is deprecated. This release has printing of this warning removed.

Also classes for the CDS and CDNSKEY are introduced to facilitate experimentation with automated DNSSEC delegation trust maintenance (see draft-ietf-dnsop-delegation-trust-maintainance).
