Things have not gone real smoothly for the 4.0 release:

1. Somehow the wrong version of leosetup.exe got associated with 4.0 final


People thinking they were downloading the 4.0 final version of this file
would instead get the 4.0 beta 1 version!  I have just uploaded and retested
this file by downloading it and reinstalling it.  All seems good (for now).
I believe this was a SF problem...

2. The 4.0 final release contains a crasher that has caused problems for
some people when opening or saving new .leo files.  To fix this, make the
following change.  If you are having problems with Leo you will probably
want to make this change outside of Leo.

In line 609 of leoFileCommands.py change:

language = name.replace(name,"/","")


language = name.replace("/","")

3. There have been Unicode problems when writing leoConfig.txt reported by
people using the cp936 text encoding.

I hope to fix all these problems in a 4.0.1 release due this week sometime.
