Pretty much done now.

Already had the first download from someone checking for an update ;-) :-)

STILL true.

But at least now the User Manuals (English and Spanish - need to figure
out what to do about Russian) are up.

Still true.

Still VERY true.

Announcements are posted to our website, Google+ and Facebook.
If you are active on any scuba boards (or open source boards, or...) feel
free to post announcements as well.

The tag has been pushed.

Lots of thanks to go around. Several people have contributed large amounts
of time to Subsurface and without you this wouldn't have been possible.
I usually post the commit counts here, but they only tell part of the
story. Some people who rarely (if ever) send patches have been really
instrumental in helping us to get to 4.2. Testing, filing bugs, working on
documentation and translations... these are really important tasks. And as
the state of the website clearly illustrate - they are things where I need
a lot of help.

Anyway, here's the commit count:
