We are proud to announce the first release candidate of what should become PowerDNS Recursor 4.3.0.

Compared to the second beta release, this release fixes a few RPZ related bugs. Additionally, a few other minor enhancements were made.

Compared to the 4.2 release of PowerDNS Recursor, the most important features that were added are:

- A relaxed form of QName Minimization as described in rfc7816bis-01. This feature is enabled by default.
- Dnstap support for outgoing queries to authoritative servers and the corresponding replies.
- The recursor now processes a number of requests incoming over a TCP connection simultaneously and will return results (potentially) out-of-order.
- Newly Observed Domain (NOD) functionality.
- 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 directory for the control socket and pid file has changed to `/var/run/pdns-recursor`.

Please refer to the changelog[1] for details.

We want to thank everyone that contributed to the testing of the beta release, and invite you to contribute to the testing of this release candidate!
