In this release there is a fix for long downtime after connectivity
loss, which was a longstanding unsolved issue.  Features for tcp, TCP
Fast Open and timeout pressure to close connections when the tcp
connections are getting full.  Option to use ipv6 /64 for extra entropy.

-   Create a pkg-config file for libunbound in contrib.
-   TCP Fast open patch from Sara Dickinson.
-   Finegrained localzone control with define-tag, access-control-tag,
access-control-tag-action, access-control-tag-data, local-zone-tag, and
local-zone-override. And added types always_transparent, always_refuse,
always_nxdomain with that.
-   If more than half of tcp connections are in use, a shorter timeout
is used (200 msec, vs 2 minutes) to pressure tcp for new connects.
-   [bugzilla: 787 ] Fix #787: outgoing-interface netblock/64 ipv6
option to use linux freebind to use 64bits of entropy for every query
with random local part.
-   For #787: prefer-ip6 option for unbound.conf prefers to send
upstream queries to ipv6 servers.
-   Add default root hints for IPv6 E.ROOT-SERVERS.NET, 2001:500:a8::e.
-   keep debug symbols in windows build.
