Release candidate for Net::DNS 1.11

Dear all,

We have a candidate for the upcoming 1.11 release 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 and
  • Zeroed waiting period with bgbusy()

See also the Changes file.

Please review this candidate carefully. If no issues arise, the actual release will follow Monday the 26th of June 2017.

Net::DNS 1.09 Released

Dear all,

We have a new feature release version 1.09 of Net::DNS.

This release introduces structured EDNS0 options. Options can now be constructed or inspected structurally via the Net::DNS::RR::OPT::option() method accessed via the edns attribute of a Net::DNS::Packet. Also, structured representations of the Options will be given when printed. Please see the documentation for information on how to use this new feature.

Besides this feature, this release has a bugfix for our previous wrong assumption that . is in @INC, and a workaround for and issue with Devel::Cover in combination with the Perl 5.24.1 compiler.

Net::DNS 1.08 Released

Dear all,

We are pleased to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its first appearance in CPAN with the release of Net::DNS version 1.08. This is the 85th release of Net::DNS since version 0.02 was published in February 1997.

The present offering represents two decades of collective effort, not just by developers past and present, but also the many people who contributed the suggestions, code, patches, bug reports and a few arguments from which we have tried to distil something useful. Thanks are due to all of these contributors.

This release adds new Net::DNS::Nameserver functionality that allows the user to register a handler for UPDATE requests, and also to insert EDNS options in reply packets.

Makefile.PL will more actively try to detect ineffective install locations due to existing Net::DNS installs earlier in the search path, and will report more clearly about this specific situation.

Besides this, we’ve decided to finally drop support for Perl versions before 5.6. Supporting only 5.6 and later allowed for a major (early) spring-clean of all the pre-5.6 workarounds and outdated language features and makes the code base easier to read, understand and maintain.

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