Dear all,

I am pleased to announce Net::DNS 1.38.

This release has:

   - a fix for incorrectly extracting the extended rcode from EDNS
     (a bug introduced in 1.36)

   - masking out the highest bit of a CLASS value with
     Net::DNS::Parameters::classbyval in support of MDNS

   - improved robustness of address parsing in Mailbox.pm

   - improved testing using the new t/TestToolkit.pm module

   - refactored socket code and control structure in Nameserver.pm

and many more code-improvements and bug and documentation fixes.

This release deprecates:

   - the packet->edns->size() method
     (replaced by packet->edns->UDPsize()).

   - the rdatastr() method for Resource Record modules
     (replaced with rdstring())
