It's done -- both the linkchecker and the markup validator have now
entered Debian Etch, which will become the next stable version.

Barring any unexpected long delay in releasing Etch, it will ship with
linkchecker 4.3 and markup validator 7.3. I attach below a short patch to update
the documentation of the validator to indicate this fact.

Cheers,

Frederic
