That is incorrect. 4.1.40 was the last 4.1.x release as the release
announcement made clear. [1]

There was also an announcement around 12 months ago that the last 4.1.x
release could be around June 2009. [2]

It isn't impossible that there will be another 4.1.x release but it is
extremely unlikely - even if a significant security vulnerability was
discovered.
