Announcing coan v4.0.1

This is a bug-fix release with related upgrading of functionality. The most useful improvements are:-

The long-standing laxity of integer-type recognition is addressed. Coan now correctly construes and calculates with values
of all the C integral types from char through unsigned long long. The integer promotions and the usual arithmetic conversions are applied.

Character constants are handled by integer parsing for the first time. Multi-byte utf8 character constants and character constants
expressed as escaped hex or octal codes, as well as ascii characters, are correctly evaluated.

A complete listing of the changes can be found in the Changelog at
