I understand your concerns, and I've just released a 4.1.4 version
which still contains some UI extension bugs, for the purpose of having
a 4.2 ASAP.

However, regarding the core features (non UI), the corrections made in
the 4.1.x releases have all been backported into the 4.0.x versions.
So the problem maybe should be to have Lucid include an up to date 4.0
version (the 4.0.6 has just been released and a 4.0.7 is on the way).
