New point version

 c-ares version 1.16.1 - May 11 2020


    Prevent possible use-after-free and double-free in ares_getaddrinfo() if ares_destroy() is called prior to ares_getaddrinfo() completing. Reported by Jann Horn at Google Project Zero. 


    Allow TXT records on CHAOS qclass. Used for retriving things like version.bind, version.server, authoris.bind, hostname.bind, and id.server. [3] 

Bug fixes:

    Fix Windows Unicode incompatibilities with ares_getaddrinfo() [1]
    Silence false cast-align compiler warnings due to valid casts of struct sockaddr to struct sockaddr_in and struct sockaddr_in6.
    MacOS should use libresolv for retrieving DNS servers, like iOS
    CMake build system should populate the INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES property of installed targets [2]
    Correct macros in use for the ares_getaddrinfo.3 man page

There are now three installed programs with this package: adig, ahost, and acountry. I've got short descriptions for them too. Builds perfectly with GCC-10 :)
