Exactly. I expect 4.0.x now only to be supported with "security" fixes.
All other bug fixes will be done in 4.1.x. New developments (features)
will end up in 4.2.0.
This is the same that happened when 4.0.0 was released. 3.8.1 was not
developed further (no man-power to support so many versions!) and nobody
seemed to have a problem with it.
Maybe instead of having the "old stable" release listed directly on the
downloads page, we could just link to:
Where all previous releases are available in the "latest stable" versions.
