Dear users of Net::DNS,

We have a new release, version 1.06 of Net::DNS.

This release addresses the following issues:

- Parsing of scoped IPv6 has been fixed when IO::Socket::IP is used
  (regression since 1.05).
- Interfering middle boxes will no longer be able to hang recursive
  lookups and interfere with unit tests.
- Linking of CNAMEs to its target address records with
  resolver->nameservers() will be done case insensitive.

This release also includes updated error reporting, resulting from
discussion and comments from the mailing list:
- axfr() in list context returns the complete zone if successful.
  If an error occurs, an empty list is returned with errorstring()
  indicating the reason.
- axfr() in scalar context returns an iterator if successful.
  If a connection failure occurs, undef is returned with errorstring()
  indicating the reason. The iterator will raise an exception if the
  transfer can not be completed.
- Resolver documentation has been clarified to make explicit that
  errorstring() is valid immediately after an error and meaningless

For a complete list of changes and bugfixes see the Changes section.
