Dear all,

We have a candidate for the 1.05 release of Net::DNS::SEC.

This release contains an interim Net::DNS::SEC implementation of the
Ed25519 and Ed488 curves (algorithm 15 and 16).  However, it is provided
as a building-kit from which some pieces have to come from a pre-build
openssl-1.1.1* source tree.   Build instructions can be found in the
include/Ed25519.h and include/Ed448.h files from the source tarball.


The current issues of the Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA module with newer versions
of OpenSSL, has made the private RSA key generation function of
Net::DNS::SEC challenging.  Key generation with Net::DNS::SEC was
already limited and restricted to RSA.  This and readily available
better private key generation tools, such as the BIND dnssec-keygen tool
(which we already recommended), made us decide to drop this function.

This release has also a single bugfix, resolving an issue with missing
attributes in private key files.

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

Please review this candidate carefully.  If no issues arise, the actual
release will follow Tuesday the 20th of March 2018.
