The module Net::SNMP implements an object oriented interface to
the Simple Network Management Protocol.  Perl applications can
use the module to retrieve or update information on a remote
host using the SNMP protocol.  Net::SNMP is implemented completely
in Perl, requires no compiling, and uses only standard Perl
modules.  SNMPv1 and SNMPv2c (Community-Based SNMPv2), as well as
SNMPv3 with USM are supported by the module.  SNMP over UDP as well
as TCP with both IPv4 and IPv6 can be used.  The Net::SNMP module
assumes that the user has a basic understanding of the Simple
Network Management Protocol and related network management concepts.

* New upstream release
o Removed the dependency on the IO::Socket::INET and IO::Socket::INET6
modules.  The IO::Socket module is now used for all socket objects.
o The port information can now be included as part of the transport
address specified with the session() Transport Domain arguments.
o Added support for specifying the scope zone index for IPv6 addresses
as described in RFC 4007 - "IPv6 Scoped Address Architecture".
o The default value for the agent-addr in SNMPv1 Trap-PDUs is now the
IP address associated with the interface on which the trap will be

* New upstream release
o Support of the AES privacy protocol was updated to be compliant with
RFC 3826 - "The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) Cipher Algorithm
in the SNMP User-based Security Model".
o Corrected an issue where any non-blocking SNMPv3 message queued prior
to calling snmp_dispatcher() was sent with an empty contextEngineID.
o The first SNMPv3 discovery message is again being sent with a zero-
length msgUserName as suggested by RFC 3414.
o All sockets are now flagged as non-blocking to prevent a possible
deadlock due to an interaction between recv() and select().
o The sending of messages is now bounded by the receive processing rate
to avoid receive buffer overflows.
o The return value of select() is now checked for both "undef" and -1.
o The "usm.t" tests are now skipped if any of the non-core modules
required by the Net::SNMP::Security::USM module are not present.
