Subversion 1.4.0 FINAL up for testing/signing

[David Anderson is having trouble with his ISP not routing mails at the moment,
 so I'm sending it in his stead --David Glasser]

It is with considerable pleasure and relief that I announce that the
1.4.0 FINAL packages are up for testing/signing. The magic revnum is
the same as rc5, r21228.


The final package is identical to rc5, with the exception of the
version numbers. At least, that's the theory. In practice, some
ordering in the build files is different, and SWIG hardcodes paths
that have changed into some comments it writes, so that screws up an
otherwise really nice clean sweet diff.

The practical upshot is that I am expecting signatures to arrive
quickly. There isn't much to do, as you can just verify that nothing
other than version and comments have changed from rc5 to now very
quickly. I'd feel better if a few people built it and ran tests
though, just to be absolutely certain.

Again, and as usual, to operating system distro maintainers, please do
not package this for end users until we have received the signatures
to bless the release. Contrary to the RCs however, I think you can
reasonably make preparations to integrate this release into your
distros. Just don't actually push them live until the official release
announcement has gone out to the world, with the signatures.

Have a good time, you've been a wonderful audience, come back with
your sigs, good night!
