First alpha release of PowerDNS Recursor 4.3.0

We are proud to announce the first alpha release for the PowerDNS
Recursor 4.3 release train. Two major features are introduced:

    o A relaxed form of QName Minimization as described in rfc7816bis-01 [1]
      has been implemented. To test this feature, do not forget to
      enable qname-minimization in the settings file.

    o When the recursor is started by systemd, the recursor will
      no longer run as the root user. Instead, it will start as the
      pdns-recursor user. Make sure directories and files needed by
      your specific recursor setup are readable by this user. For
      non-systemd and non-chroot cases, the default location of the
      control socket and pid file has changed to /var/run/pdns-recursor.

Please see the changelog [2] for details about other improvements and
bug fixes and the documentation [3] for more details about setting up
the recursor.

We want to thank everyone that contributed to this and earlier
releases, and invite you to contribute to the testing of this alpha
