In addition to fixing a number of bugs the following main features where added:

  • Support for the DHCID, KX and HIP RR
  • Truncation support in Net::DNS::Packet used by Net::DNS::Nameserver
    this feature may cause unexpected behavior for your nameservers (packets on the wire may have different content than you intended). The feature be turned off by setting Truncate to 0 during the creation of the nameserver.
    my $ns = Net::DNS::Nameserver->new(

  • Addition of Net::DNS::Domain as a start towards a more structured handling of domain names.
