This release fixes a crash in dnstap. New features are XoT which
provides AXFR and IXFR over TLS, and DNS Cookies support and SVCB and
HTTPS RR type support.

For zone transfer TLS can be turned on by specifying the tls-auth-name
in the request-xfr config option, like
request-xfr: NOKEY ns.example.com
With the tls-cert-bundle option, in the server section, the list of
certificates for authenticating the transfers over TLS can be configured.

The DNS cookies can be turned on or off with the answer-cookie option,
and instead of a randomly generated secret, for anycast or loadbalanced
deployment, the secret can be configured with cookie-secret or
cookie-secret-file and rollover of the cookie secret can be performed
with the nsd-control commands add_cookie_secret, activate_cookie_secret
and drop_cookie_secret, using the cookie-secret-file.

The SVCB and HTTPS RR type support mean that in zone files the syntax
for these RR types can be used and is written when a zone is downloaded.
In previous versions the unknown RR type support code provided a
fallback syntax in zone files and on the wire functionality for these types.
