  As planned I tagged the release in git and pushed the new version
to the usual place as tarball and rpms:

  I hesited a bit in pushing the patchset from Peter fixing the
memory corruption bug, but since it seems hard to reproduce and
the amount of change was a bit too large to push just before a
release, I prefered delaying it until after 1.0.4 .
  This release is a bit smaller than usual at around 200 patches
but that's not surprizing considering the shrter timeframe since
1.0.3. This includes an homogenous set of features, improvements
and bug fixes, plus updates for localization of ukrainian (100%),
japanese (100%), French (12%) and Gujarati (78%)
