This is the pre-release, for reporting build issues and their ilk.

New IPv6 address for one of the root servers in the default root server
configuration.  And a number of bug fixes, for CD flags to forwarders,
for 0x20 compatibility, for qname-minimisation with DNSSEC.

Features
    generic edns option parse and store code.
    Updated L root IPv6 address.
    User defined pluggable event API for libunbound
    ip_freebind: yesno option in unbound.conf sets IP_FREEBIND for
binding to an IP address while the interface or address is down.
    OpenSSL 1.1.0 portability, --disable-dsa configure option.
    disable-dnssec-lame-check config option from Charles Walker.

Bug Fixes
    [bugzilla: 745 ]
    Fix unbound.py - idn2dname throws UnicodeError when idnname contains
trailing dot.
    configure tests for the weak attribute support by the compiler.

CD bit on the first attempt to a forwarder, but CD bit thereafter on
repeated attempts to get DNSSEC.
    Limit number of QNAME minimisation iterations.
    Validate QNAME minimised NXDOMAIN responses.
    If QNAME minimisation is enabled, do cache lookup for QTYPE NS in
harden-below-nxdomain.

signed zones.
    [bugzilla: 767 ]
    Fix Reference to an expired Internet-Draft in harden-below-nxdomain
documentation.
    remove memory leak from lame-check patch.
    [bugzilla: 770 ]
