Fellow xotclers,

i am glad to annouce the availablity of xotcl 1.4.0. The major
changes against 1.3.9 are:

    * Improved Functionality
      * new option: ::xotcl::configure softrecreate on|off
         if softrecreate is set, class relations (superclass, subclass, 
class, instances)
         are not affected by a recreate; this allows files with class 
         more easily to reload
       + easier syntax for providing commands for initializing default 
       + setting and querying options for ::xotcl::configure simiar to set

     * Improved Code Quality:
       + fixed a bug in connection with nonpositional arguments and "args"
       + fixed a bug with adding on the fly transitive mixin classes
       + fixed a bug with filter states after next
       + fixed omitted error message after calling self with unknown 
       + fixed a bug with variable traces on thread exit (triggered by 
       + fixed incorrect rpm dependencies
       + cleaner compile for xotcl for gcc 4.* under linux
       + don't destroy namespace imported child objects
       + info children returns true children, not namespace imported 
       + unsetting the global variable "cmd" from predefined.xotcl
       + Upgraded TEA to 3.5
       + more regression tests addeed
