Net::DNS 1.04 released

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

This is a emergency recovery and bugfix release.

The 1.03 release of Net::DNS addressed some longstanding request tracker issues (TCP and persistent sockets for bg(send|read|isreead)), but unfortunately in such a way that dependent modules broke.

This release has fixes to make those dependent modules work again without losing the aforementioned work.

To support us in this effort we have started to do regression testing of dependent modules ourselves, by running the dependent module’s test suite against a new Net::DNS. The results of these tests are put online here: https://www.net-dns.org/regression/.

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

Fast-track release candidate for the emergency recovery and bugfix release 1.04 of Net::DNS

We have a candidate for the upcoming 1.04 emergency recovery and bugfix release of Net::DNS.

The 1.03 release of Net::DNS had bugfixes (TCP and persistent sockets for bg(send|read|isreead)) that were unfortunately tackled in such a way that dependent modules broke. This is something we do not want to happen.

We have been doing release candidates to help to prevent these situations from happening. We realize however that just one week is a short period to do a proper review and also that some issues might not be immediately obvious.

To improve we will from now on always do regressions testing of modules dependent on Net::DNS ourselves before doing the release candidates. The results of these regressions tests are put online here: https://www.net-dns.org/regression/. Packages that still have regression with the release candidate there do have it for known, non hazardous, or reasons that are being addressed (see footnote 1).

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

Because of the severity of the fixed bugs and also in an attempt to prevent further fixes based on version 1.03, this is a fast-track release candidate. We still ask you review this candidate carefully and thoroughly and report back if there are issues! If no issues arise, the actual release will follow Tuesday the 8th of December 2015.

Footnote (1)
Explanation of regressions that still occur for 1.03_03 as seen on https://www.net-dns.org/regression/:
– Mail-SpamAssassin is because of a warning given for the developer release version number and is harmless
– IO-Lambda 1.25 simply has to rollback it’s change that it did for the 1.03 release (IO-Lambda 1.24 works again)
– POE-Component-Server-DNS has a bug which has been reported with a suggested fix (which has been tested with POE-Component-Server-DNS-0.30-fixed).

Net::DNS 1.03 Released

We have a new release, version 1.03 of Net::DNS.

This release contains work on Net::DNS’ Resolver. We now use IO::Socket::IP for better and more equally treated IPv6 support. Also the recursive part has, code-wise, been optimized.

This release has several very old Request Tickets resolved, which contained feature requests, for TCP support and persistent sockets for the Resolver::bg(send|read|isready) functions.

Release candidate for Net::DNS 1.03

We have a candidate for the upcoming 1.03 bugfix/feature release of Net::DNS.

This release addresses several very long outstanding bugs. The oldest TCP support for bgsend which was submitted in 2005.

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

If no issues arise, the actual release will follow Monday the 7th of September 2015.

Net::DNS 1.02 released

We have just released version 1.02 of Net::DNS.

This is a bugfix release. Most prominent fix is the corrected handling handling of delegations containing empty-non-terminals with Net::DNS::Resolver::Recurse. Also the dependency on the MIME::Base32 distribution is removed to accommodate windows installations.

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

Also a new version (1.02) of Net::DNS::SEC is released with a bugfix that deals with an exception raised in a Net::DNS unit test (t/10-keyset.t).

Net::DNS 1.02 release delayed

Dear all,

We publish candidates for releases and ask you to try them out to receive feedback on possible issues that we might have missed and have an opportunity to correct them before the actual release.

Besides your feedback, release candidates are also published as developer releases (through PAUSE) so they get tested on a wide range of different platforms by the CPAN testers.

Unfortunately their test-report collecting and processing site has been down now (since August 30). This time we did not receive feedback from the developer release. We have seen one fail (besides passes) in the CPAN testers log tail though.

Furthermore, developer releases are also processed by cpancover.org which provides coverage details of the unit tests. The reports for our recent developer releases show too few covered files, suggesting that the unit tests somehow stopped halfway. It might just as well have another cause, but we don’t know.

These things combined have made us decide to delay the release for one more week. By then we hope to have our usual CPAN testers feedback, or have more insight in what the issue may be.

So, if all is well, the actual release of Net::DNS 1.02 will follow Tuesday the 14th of September 2015. Find our latest develop release/release candidate below.

Net::DNS::SEC 1.01 Released

Dear all,

We have just released version 1.01 of Net::DNS::SEC.

This is the companion distribution for Net::DNS 1.01. Since Net::DNS 1.01, all RRs related to DNSSEC have been migrated to Net::DNS. This distribution is now only needed to perform cryptographic operations: i.e. signature generation and verification.

Net::DNS 1.01 Released

I am very pleased to announce that we have just released version 1.01 of Net::DNS.

This is the first major release of Net::DNS since Michael Fuhr started this project in 1997. Since then many people have contributed to the Net::DNS project and shaped it into the distribution it is now. A very incomplete list of authors (from the Copyright sections of the modules) is: Rob Brown, Andreas Gustafsson, Olaf Kolkman, Sidney Markowitz, Robert Martin-Legene, Chris Reinhardt, Mike Schiraldi, and Andrew Tridgell. Thank you all, and also all the unmentioned people for contributing to, developing on and maintaining Net::DNS!

I took over maintenance of the distribution at NLnet Labs from Olaf Kolkman in 2012. Since then Dick Franks, who was always a prominent contributor has become the primary developer of the distribution.

In late 2012 a major architectural rework commenced, initially to support IDN, but later also to cleanup and to turn Net::DNS in an even more robust and readable code base with a clear and unambiguous interface. We have made this a major release because we consider this architectural rework and cleanup now stable and finished.

This release has the RRs integrated that were previously only available with Net::DNS::SEC, however without the signature generation and verification functions. To enable those functions Net::DNS::SEC still needs to be installed.

As part of the process, the whole of Net::DNS has been brought under the MIT license already used by Net::DNS::SEC. We requested and have received agreement and permission from all the principal authors to apply this license to their respective modules.

Besides the incorporation of the Net::DNS::SEC RRs, this release contains bug fixes and updates with current DNS parameters as usual. For a complete list of changes and bugfixes see the CHANGES file.
