As you probably noticed, we are a bit behind on the 5.4 release.  There 
was a major stability problem reported several weeks ago in a particlar
high load, high profile environment, and we decided that it was in
everyones best interest to get it resolved before the release.  Well,
thanks to the tireless efforts of Doug White and Stephen Uphoff and
several others, the bug has been found, fixed, and verified.  As soon
as it and a few other fixes get merged in, we will start the RC4 build
process and hopefully release it for testing late this weekend.  After
that, unless another show-stopper comes up, we expect to build and
release 5.4-RELEASE next weekend.

Thanks for everyone's patience and work so far.  When RC4 comes out 
please test it as much as possible so that we can ensure that 5.4 is
a good release.
