Hi all!

Please consider http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/release/icedtea-web-1.4 as frozen. Tarball:
a03135f895d60837f6bf7784de0c3914 http://icedtea.classpath.org/hg/release/icedtea-web-1.4 is under 

Unless some mayor fault will be found, this will become official release.
As there is nothing crucial, if somebody feels something shoud be added, let me know as soon as 
possible , and I will retag.
