Sorry, my copy / paste bad habit for announce emails...
Yes, it was final.

4.0.3 has been a short cycle release to fix some urgent bugs / regression
on top of 4.0.2.

4.0.4 will have probably a longer cycle and even if we just released 4.0.3
GA, having fixed more than 100 bugs comparing to 4.0.3 seemed a good idea
to issue a RC allowing people afflicted by those bugs to have a fix to test
as soon as possible.
