Dear all,

We have a candidate for the upcoming 1.20 release of Net::DNS and the
upcoming 1.12 release of Net::DNS::SEC.

The Net::DNS candidate has a single bugfix that addresses correctly
caching IP’s for delegations in the Recurse.pm module.

Besides this bugfix, this release has

  * TSIG MAC representation changed to Base64 (like with dig)
  * Updated IANA parameters
  * updated examples that use AAAA instead of A records.
  * Overall improvements in code and test scripts

The Net::DNS::SEC candidate contains simplified (more robust) support
for the different versions of Open & LibreSSL, including a fix for the
future OpenSSL 3.0.0. Current thought is to support latest two LibreSSL

Please review these candidates carefully. If no issues arise, the actual
releases will follow Tuesday the 19th of March 2019.
