Dear all,

We have a candidate for the upcoming 1.18 release of Net::DNS.

This release includes

* Updated root hints, with the "new" IP address for b.root-servers.net.
* A bugfix for failing Net::DNS::ZoneFile->parse() when an include
  directory was specified.
* A bugfix for broken resolution when /etc/resolv.conf had an ndots
* A change in terminology: A DNS reply is not called “answer” anymore to
  avoid disambiguate. This change applies to a few function names too:
  * Net::DNS::Packet::from() replaces answerfrom()
  * Net::DNS::Packet::size() replaces answersize()
  * Net::DNS::Resolver::replyfrom() replaces answerfrom()
  The old function names will remain for backwards compatibility.

See also the Changes section.

Please review this candidate carefully. If no issues arise, the actual
release will follow Friday the 21th of September 2018.
