Hi all,

We are pleased to announce the release of DNS-STATS Compactor version

This release is the first production release for version 1.0, which
implements the C-DNS format described in RFC8618.

Updates since 0.12.3:
* Supports C-DNS as described in RFC8618.
** compactor writes only C-DNS 1.0 format.
** inspector reads C-DNS 1.0 and all previously supported draft formats.
* New fine-grained selection of data stored in C-DNS via
excluded_fields file.
** Previous section 'include' settings are deprecated, and may only be
used if excluded_fields file is not specified.
** Default values may be supplied to inspector for individual items of
data not present in the C-DNS file. A complete set of defaults must be
supplied when outputting PCAP.
* inspector command line options --info-only and --report-only
are deprecated, and replaced with --no-info and --no-output.
* Added template items query_response_query_has_no_question and
Item query_response_query_has_question is deprecated.
* Addresses stored in C-DNS files may be stored only to a given
prefix length, potentially saving storage space.
* Fix exception decoding IPv6 without transport flags.
* Additional filtering in test to allow for newer tshark versions.

Updates since 1.0.0~rc1: None.

We intend to continue to provide bug fix updates where necessary for the
0.12 series until version 1.1 is released.
