In general, you should prefer a 1.4.1 (to get bugfixes only).  That
makes the PAS release cycle less coupled to your needs, as well.

That is indeed my preference, though in the past we have had single
dot releases for each revision, so I thought that might just be some
PAS version policy.  A 1.4.1 would be great, though I have to admit
the new authentication caching stuff sounds pretty desirable.

 Can you identify the bugfixes on the trunk which are important to PlonePAS?

Unless you use DelegatingMultiPlugin, the only one I can see which might
matter is:

  ZODBUserManager: Already encrypted passwords were encrypted again in
  addUser and updateUserPassword.

I've just backported this to the 1.4 branch, along with a fix for
emergency user breakage.

Thanks, these certainly are important to have, additionally:

 BasePlugin: The listInterfaces method only considered the old-style
 __implements__ machinery when determining interfaces provided by
 a plugin instance.

Would probably be helpful as well.  Thanks for looking at this and
backporting those changes.  Do you think you'll have time to make a
release?  Also, does the PAS release policy require a 1 week beta/rc
period for minor releases like 1.4.1?
