This is the fourth release of the stable 1.4 series of OpenSTA. This release has been a long time coming but it should be the start of a new active period in OpenSTAs upkeep and development. The release rights some inconvenient issues that arrived with use on WinXP, fixes some old bugs, and generally improves stability specifically in the area of recording. It is recommended that all users upgrade to this release.
