MediaWiki 1.4.0 released

MediaWiki 1.4.0 is the first official stable release in the 1.4 series. All new installations are highly recommended to use 1.4.0 instead of 1.3.x; 1.3.x users should consider upgrading for bug fixes and new features.

1.4 beta or release candidate users should upgrade to this release.

See the release notes (link below) for a fuller list of changes from the previous 1.3.x series and installation notes.
