Some changes are happening that webmasters need to be aware of.

Feb 1st 2019 is being called DNS flag day. Non-compliant websites will become unreachable.
Starting February 1st, 2019 there will be no attempt to disable EDNS as reaction to a DNS query timeout.
This effectivelly means that all DNS servers which do not respond at all to EDNS queries are going to be treated as dead.
You can test your domain here: 2019 (stratics is fine)

Also, Google has announced that ad managers must opt-out of having a Google employee log into their ad accounts and making changes if Google sees fit. A 7 day notice was issued. Since opted-in is the default webmasters must act or will automatically be opted in and grant a Google employee permission to change things in your account as they see fit.
