MacPorts 1.4.1 has been released for selfupdate. It should hit the  
rsync servers within an hour or so.

If you already have macports installed, simply "sudo port  
selfupdate". If  you're doing a new install, install from the 1.4.0  
disk image, then do a selfupdate.

MacPorts 1.4.1 is a minor bugfix/feature release. ChangeLog entries

     - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group

       master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).

     - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
       into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the

       flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).

       handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23089, r23125,

     - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for checks, made the up to date message info  
(instead of
       debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
       r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)

     - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install  
       when required. (pguyot in r23700)

     - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
       gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
