I am proud to announce a new eric 4.1 snapshot release. It fixes some bugs and 
contains these changes.

- made plugins deactivateable and added a context menu to the plugins
  info dialog
- added code to remember the deactivated plugins
- added dialog to install new plugins
- added dialog to uninstall plugins
- added the methods registerPluginObject/unregisterPluginObject to 
  KQApplication to allow Plugins to register their object.
- added code to allow registered plugins, that have a getActions() method
  to have the shortcuts configured via the shortcuts configuration dialog
- added code to allow active plugins to be configured via the
  configuration dialog
- added the commandline option --plugin=pluginfile to eric4.py. This
  option can be used for plugin development to specify a plugin file
  to load (e.g. eric4 --plugin=/my/plugin/develoment/area/PluginTest.py).
- added actions and code to create eric4 plugin archive files
- added the new project type "Eric4 Plugin"
- added code to run/debug/... an eric4 plugin from within eric4 by starting
  another eric4 process instead of the plugin main script
- removed the character tables dialog
  (will be provided as a plugin by Jürgen Urner)
- removed the Bicycle Repair Man code and converted it to a standalone
- added option to configure, whether the project browsers should highlight
  the entry for the file of the current editor
- added a field to enter a more descriptive text for a task
- changed the way how files and directories can be added to a project in
  order to respect the project's filetype associations

As usual it is available via http://www.die-offenbachs.de/eric/snapshots4.
