Hi Erica;

I see that Edwin already sent you the link to the latest snapshot build 
of 4.0. Be aware that these builds are done with full integration so 
that they can delete an older stable version. There is a check box in 
the installer that lets you delete older versions that is checked by 
default. If you want to keep a stable older version along with the 
development 4.0 you should clear that box.

Feel free to work on the Draw sections or any others that you feel 
comfortable with.
