+* Reject and tempfail actions: Functional notation
+
+The reply actions `reject' and `tempfail' allow functional notation,
+i.e. their arguments can be supplied as to a function:
+
+ reject(550, 5.7.7, "IP address does not resolve")
+
+An important feature of this notation is that all three arguments are
+MFL expressions, which means that you can now compute the reply codes
+at run time:
+
+ reject(550 + %n, "5.7." %x, "Transaction rejected")
+
+An argument can be omitted, in which case the default value is used, e.g.:
+
+ reject(550 + %n, , "Transaction rejected")
+
* New functions
A set of new functions is added that allow to access the headers
