We are proud to announce the second and hopefully last release candidate
of what should become PowerDNS Recursor 4.3.0.

Compared to the first release candidate, this release candidate changes
the way RPZ policies are processed: if the matched policy is passthru,
policies with a higher priority are still considered later in the
resolving process. Additionally, a bug in the validation of NSEC records
was fixed.

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)
* 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

Please refer to the changelog[1] for details.

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