Hello everybody,

A new release for the PowerDNS Recursor with version 4.0.3 is available. This release has many fixes and improvements in the Policy Engine (RPZ) and the Lua bindings to it. Therefore, we recommend users of RPZ to upgrade to this release. We would like to thank Wim (42wim on github[1]) for testing and reporting on the RPZ module.
