Dear users of Net::DNS,
I am very pleased to announce that we have just released version 1.01
This is the first major release of Net::DNS since Michael Fuhr started
this project in 1997. Since then many people have contributed to the
Net::DNS project and shaped it into the distribution it is now. A very
incomplete list of authors (from the Copyright sections of the
modules) is: Rob Brown, Andreas Gustafsson, Olaf Kolkman, Sidney
Markowitz, Robert Martin-Legene, Chris Reinhardt, Mike Schiraldi, and
Andrew Tridgell. Thank you all, and also all the unmentioned people
for contributing to, developing on and maintaining Net::DNS!
I took over maintenance of the distribution at NLnet Labs from Olaf
Kolkman in 2012. Since then Dick Franks, who was always a prominent
contributor has become the primary developer of the distribution.
In late 2012 a major architectural rework commenced, initially to
support IDN, but later also to cleanup and to turn Net::DNS in an even
more robust and readable code base with a clear and unambiguous
interface. We have made this a major release because we consider this
architectural rework and cleanup now stable and finished.
This release has the RRs integrated that were previously only
available with Net::DNS::SEC, however without the signature generation
and verification functions. To enable those functions Net::DNS::SEC
still needs to be installed.
As part of the process, the whole of Net::DNS has been brought under
the MIT license already used by Net::DNS::SEC. We requested and have
received agreement and permission from all the principal authors to
apply this license to their respective modules.
Besides the incorporation of the Net::DNS::SEC RRs, this release
contains bug fixes and updates with current DNS parameters as usual.
For a complete list of changes and bugfixes see Changes below.
The RRs previously only available with Net::DNS::SEC are now
integrated with Net::DNS. Net::DNS::SEC needs to be installed
to enable the signature generation and verification functions.
