Dear all,

We have new release version 1.18 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.
* Overall improved documentation

**** 1.18 Sep 21, 2018

        Documentation revised to remove ambigous use of "answer" which
        has been used to refer to both the answer section of a packet
        and the entire reply packet received from a nameserver.
