release 0.8.3 of nss-pam-ldapd

Release 0.8.3 of nss-pam-ldapd has just been made available which fixes
a few bugs and introduces some new features.

A summary of the changes since 0.8.2:
* support using the objectSid attribute to provide numeric user and
  group ids, based on a patch by Wesley Mason
* check shadow account and password expiry properties (similarly to what
  pam_unix does) in the PAM handling code
* implement attribute mapping functionality in pynslcd
* relax default for validnames option to allow user names of only two
* make user and group name validation errors a little more informative
* small portability improvements
* general code improvements and refactoring in pynslcd
* some simplifications in the protocol between the PAM module and nslcd
  (without actual protocol changes so far)
* Debian packaging improvements

The 0.8 series remains in development mode and several more bigger
changes, enhancements and new features are planned. Users that require a
stable release are encouraged to stay with 0.7 until 0.8 stabilises.
