But it's listed as 1.4.2-dev (in development).
I'm not sure exactly what you have in mind, but feel free to fix it..
it's a really minor issue to me.

I sort of adopted the lucene convention of how to deal with 3x and trunk.
If you fix something in trunk and are going to immediately merge back
to 3x, you put it in the 3x section of CHANGES in trunk and then merge

Personally, I think it might be easiest to keep two files in trunk:
CHANGES would always be identical to 3x, and you would update that if
you were going to merge back to 3x.
When it's time for release, CHANGES_40 and CHANGES could be put together.
