NEWS for Version 1.4.0

Changes in this release:

  * A new "Manifests" file is generated to list architectures,
    platforms, and sections in a suite.
  * The "include" command no longer prints a list of included files.
    This was a minor bug introduced in version 1.1.0.
  * "Packages" index files are now compressed with gzip if a new
    "conf_gzip" configuration variable (default: true) is set.
