PowerDNS Authoritative 4.0.4 Release Candidate 1 released!

Tarballs (sig) and packages for different operating systems can be downloaded from the downloads website. The packages are versioned so that users of the 4.0.x repositories can download and install them (using dpkg -i or rpm -U) and when the final release of 4.0.5 is added to the repositories, the package will be upgraded to the version in the repository.
