Separate announcement is good. Besides that it is wise to use the 
dependencies in ext_emconf.php right. Right now the dependency for 1.4.4 
states 'depends on typo3 4.0-0.0.0'. When uploading a new version to the 
TER, also mention the version in the upload comment. This upload comment 
is visible in the TER, so people know for which TYPO3 this version of 
rtehtmlarea is. This was also done with the recent security fix versions.
