Net::DNS Version 0.63 released

Net::DNS version 0.63 has just been released

This release fixes a security issue (CVE-2007-6341).

Previously the packet parsing routine could croak on a carefully crafted DNS response. This has been fixed by putting the packet parsing routines in eval blocks so that exeptions are trapped.

 In addition this version introduces a NotifyHandler callback routine in the Nameserver class. This function will be called when the query opdoce on a query is NOTIFY (RFC1996).

Dick Franks has contributions have been most valuable.

See Changes for details.
