peekabot 0.4 released

The 0.4 release has seen numerous bugfixes and internal enhancements, and should be much more stable than the 0.3 release which pioneered some new, buggy changes.

 * Support for concave and self-intersecting polygons.
 * The definition file schemas have been fixed to allow elements to be specified in arbitrary order.
 * Support for all object types in the client library.... read more
