Dear all,

We are pleased to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of its first appearance
in CPAN with the release of Net::DNS version 1.08. This is the 85th
release of Net::DNS since version 0.02 was published in February 1997.

The present offering represents two decades of collective effort, not
just by developers past and present, but also the many people who
contributed the suggestions, code, patches, bug reports and a few
arguments from which we have tried to distil something useful. Thanks
are due to all of these contributors.

This release adds new Net::DNS::Nameserver functionality that allows the
user to register a handler for UPDATE requests, and also to insert EDNS
options in reply packets.

Makefile.PL will more actively try to detect ineffective install
locations due to existing Net::DNS installs earlier in the search path,
and will report more clearly about this specific situation.

Besides this, we’ve decided to finally drop support for Perl versions
before 5.6. Supporting only 5.6 and later allowed for a major (early)
spring-clean of all the pre-5.6 workarounds and outdated language
features and makes the code base easier to read, understand and maintain.

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