HAProxy 1.7.3 was released on 2017/02/28. It added 19 new commits
after version 1.7.2.

It addresses 4 main issues that affect all 1.7 versions till 1.7.2 :
  - DNS resolver not working in multi-process mode due to the same
    socket being reused between all processes ; Baptiste has now fixed

  - an ugly segfault in the Lua http_get_path() function when a request
    didn't begin with a '/' ; apparently Thierry was the only one to use
    it :-)

  - a possible truncation of some transfer-encoded responses that had
    to be compressed by haproxy. This is an 1.7 regression that
    Christopher spotted in the filters and which is now fixed.

  - an occasional overwrite of the work buffer when dealing with
    complex log-format expressions involving Lua for example. This
    was addressed by Thierry and Christopher.

A few other things were addressed, such as the incorrect parsing of words
other than "if" or "unless" on use-backend lines (Adrian Fitzpatrick),
the end of the stupid unconditional close after a redirect not starting
with "/" (Ciprian Dorin Craciun). The remaining stuff is pretty minor.

If you don't use compression nor DNS nor Lua nor rewrite rules you don't
need to upgrade, but it seems very likely that all 1.7 users will have
to upgrade. At least I will...
