Hi all,

It's been a while since the last release, but here it is: c-ares 1.16.0

As usual, get it from https://c-ares.haxx.se/

Enjoy!

c-ares version 1.16.0

Changes:
  o Introduction of ares_getaddrinfo() API which provides similar output
    (including proper sorting as per RFC 6724) to the system native API, but
    utilizes different data structures in order to provide additional
    information such as TTLs and all aliases. Please reference the respective
    man pages for usage details. [3] [4] [5] [7] [8] [13] [14] [15] [16] [17] [22]
  o Parse SOA records from ns_t_any response [29] [30]
  o CMake: Provide c-ares version in package export file [24]
  o CMake: Add CPACK functionality for DEB and RPM [28]
  o CMake: Generate PDB files during build [33] [34]
  o CMake: Support manpage installation [37] [38]

Bug fixes:
  o Fix bad expectation in IPv6 localhost test. [1] [2]
  o AutoTools: use XC_CHECK_BUILD_FLAGS instead of XC_CHECK_USER_FLAGS to
    prevent complaints about CPPFLAGS in CFLAGS. [6]
  o Fix .onion handling
  o Command line usage was out of date for adig and ahost. [18]
  o Typos in manpages [19] [20]
  o If ares_getenv is defined, it must return a value on all platforms [21]
  o If /etc/resolv.conf has invalid lookup values, use the defaults. [23]
  o Tests: Separate live tests from SetServers* tests as only live tests should
    require internet access. [25]
  o ares_gethostbyname() should return ENODATA if no valid A or AAAA record is
    found, but a CNAME was found. [26] [27]
  o CMake: Rework library function checking to prevent unintended linking with
    system libraries that aren't needed. [31] [32]
  o Due to use of inet_addr() it was not possible to return 255.255.255.255
    from ares_gethostbyname(). [35] [36]
  o CMake: Fix building of tests on Windows
