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.
