Greenstone v2.40a

> Hello everyone,
> Version 2.40a of the Windows, Linux, and Source distributions has been
> released. The purpose of this release is to improve the integration of
> the Librarian Interface tool into Greenstone (not to fix bugs in v2.40).
> The Librarian Interface now comes as standard in all distributions
> (uncompiled in the source distribution, compiled in all the others). It
> is installed in a subdirectory of GSDLHOME called "gli".
> The release features the same Greenstone code as v2.40 (ie. no changes
> since then are included). Similarly, the Greenstone Librarian Interface
> code is essentially the same as that distributed with v2.40. The
> exception to this are a few small fixes that should make running the
> Librarian Interface easier for most people. In particular, the Librarian
> Interface will now run successfully when installed in a location
> containing spaces. Also, a small text document (gli.txt) has been
> included with instructions on how to run the Librarian Interface.
> To summarise, version 2.40a replaces v2.40 as the best version to
> download for most people. However, if you have already downloaded v2.40
> then you do not need to download v2.40a (unless you are having problems
