Hi friends!

I just packaged and signed the c-ares 1.4.0 release and it is now available on
the c-ares page:

This is what's new and changed in the c-ares 1.4.0 release:

  o fixed VS2005 compiler warnings due to time_t being 64bit
  o introduced cryptographically secure transaction IDs
  o added ares_save_options()
  o added ares_destroy_options()
  o added ares_process_fd()
  o fixed undefined return value in init_by_resolv_conf() function for windows
  o added ares_parse_ns_reply()
  o fix failure to get the search sequence of /etc/hosts and DNS from
    /etc/nsswitch.conf, /etc/host.conf or /etc/svc.conf when /etc/resolv.conf
    did not exist
  o when domains were sert in the options struct, and there were domain/search
    entries in /etc/resolv.conf, the domains of the options struct would be
  o removed a couple of potential zero size memory allocations
  o fixed the line endings in areslib.dsp

Thanks go to these friendly people for their efforts and contributions:

  Andreas Rieke, Yang Tse, Michael Wallner, Vlad Dinulescu, Ravi Pratap,
  Brad House, Shmulik Regev, Brad Spencer
