Agreed.  This should be emphasized until we're confident that nobody new to Squeak (or returning from a hiatus) can be unaware of it.  

Also, we should start a discussion about how to wrap up 4.1 ASAP.  I think Bert described it well in another thread: 
	- decide which bugs need to be fixed for 4.1
	- declare a feature-freeze
	- iterate between fixing the bugs and producing release-candidates
	- push the release out so that trunk can again be open to new development

If we could do this within, say, a month, then we could push out announcements to Slashdot, etc. for 4.0 and 4.1 at the same time... this would make a bigger splash than two separate announcements.
