Hi everybody!

I've finally gotten around and released GNUnet 0.4.0.
There are several major changes:

* 0.4.0 is incompatible with all prior versions in pretty

  sorry for that :-(
* 0.4.0 has a week dependency on libextractor which is 
  currently not bundled, you may want to download and
  install that little library.
* The webserver has changed, gecko is gone, the new
  machine is Also the CVS repository was moved 

Now for the good news:
* the 'can not insert while gnunetd is running'
  bug (and all related issues) is finally fixed
* GNUnet should now work on big-endian machines 
* libextractor allows us to extract keywords from
  mp3 and ogg files, and the library can be trivially
  extended if you know some other format and can 
  write a bit of C code.
* build system has been cleaned up a lot
* SKEY exchange is less flaky (3-way handshake)
* HELOs must be confirmed, no longer thousands of
  'unreachable' hosts in the hostlist
* we now have the mime-type in the RBlock
* and also a suggested filename is in the RBlock
* performance has risen dramatically
* many, many bugfixes
* even more documentation

for the ton of changes that were made, 
but this is still a .0 version and a
