Dear all,

We have a new candidate for the upcoming 1.8.2 release of ldns. This
release contains a few bugfixes and some other changes, most notably:

* Since draft-ietf-dnsop-svcb-https will become RFC now anytime soon,
  SVCB and HTTPS RR types are now compiled by default

* Functionality for parsing and printing of EDNS0 Options.

  The list of options in a packet can be accessed via a new function:
  ldns_pkt_edns_get_option_list(ldns_pkt *packet). The list can be
  further manipulated with functions as described in edns.h. Finally
  the options can be converted to presentation format with
  ldns_edns_option_list2buffer_str() from host2str.h.

  drill will now also print EDNS0 options in a parsed format.

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 12th of August 2022.

The actual release will be four weeks after the candidate release
instead of one week, because I will be on holiday the coming three
weeks. After I return on the 8th of August I will process the feedback
on the candidate release and do the actual release on the 12th.
