This is the maintainers prerelease.

This release has the 2017 root trust anchor in unbound-anchor.  Previous
versions should work equally well during root key rollover.  In this new
version, the UDP initialisation attempt will be able to be successful,
instead of having to fall back to fetching the XML.

Compile time changes are --enable-systemd for systemd integration.
contrib/libunbound.pc for pkg-config integration (introduced in 1.6.0)
that could be used by packagers.  The libunbound API has changed
slightly, the callback typedef does not end in _t to make the include
file POSIX compliant.


Features
- configure --enable-systemd and lets unbound use systemd sockets if you
enable use-systemd: yes in unbound.conf. Also there are
contrib/unbound.socket and contrib/unbound.service: systemd files for
unbound, install them in /usr/lib/systemd/system. Contributed by Sami
Kerola and Pavel Odintsov.
- [bugzilla: 1185 ]
  Source IP rate limiting, patch from Larissa Feng.
- [bugzilla: 1184 ]
  Log DNS replies. This includes the same logging information that DNS
queries and response code and response size, patch from Larissa Feng.
- Include root trust anchor id 20326 in unbound-anchor.
- 64bit is default for windows builds.

- [bugzilla: 1194 ]
  Fix if cross build fails when $host isn't `uname` for getentropy.

names are reserved by POSIX.
- Increase MAX_MODULE to 16.
- [bugzilla: 1211 ]
  Fix can't enable interface-automatic if no IPv6 with more helpful
error message.
- fix root_anchor test for updated icannbundle.pem lower certificates.
