Dear all,

I’m pleased to announce a new release, version 1.05 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 state of the Crypt::OpenSSL::RSA module (with respect to
newer versions of OpenSSL), has made the private RSA key generation
function of Net::DNS::SEC challenging (to say the least). 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.
