Curl and libcurl 7.10.3 is out! A bugfix release.

time before the popular binary archives are up-to-date with this.

This release includes the following changes:

 o configure script bug related to CONTENT_ENCODING fixed

 o Name resolve fix to correct the 7.10.2-fix!

Other curl-related news since the previous public release:
