Dear all,

We have a new candidate for the upcoming 1.8.0 release of ldns.
Besides many bugfixes, this release also has a few new features, most

* ZONEMD support in ldns-signzone and ldns-verify-zone

* Draft implementation of the SVCB and HTTPS RR types.
  Use --enable-rrtype-svcb-https with configure to compile with these

Please review this release candidate carefully and let us know if
anything is wrong.  If all is well, the actual release will follow
Friday the 19th of November 2021.
