Dear all,

We have a candidate for the upcoming 1.16 release of Net::DNS.

This release contains new and improved methods for NSEC and NSEC3 RRs to
enquery about the name it covers(), the types in its typemap(), and in
case of NSEC3 about the encloser(), nextcloser() and (unexpanded)

Also, IPv6 support is now only with the IO::Socket::IP module. Support
for the IO::Socket::INET6 is removed (as announced since 1.12).

See also the Changes below.

Please review this candidate carefully. If no issues arise, the actual
release will follow Sunday the 15th of July 2018.

**** 1.16 [unreleased]

        New NSEC3 encloser(), nextcloser() and wildcard() instance
        methods return closest encloser, "next closer" and putative
        wildcard names respectively.

        Add new NSEC covers() instance method.

        New NSEC typemap() instance method interrogates type list.

        IO::Socket::INET6 removed from recommended module metadata.
        IPv6 requires IO::Socket::IP which is now a core package.
