I created a 4.1.2 alpha 3:


Xin Wang: this should have the new home project.

Everything is committed to SVN, including the notes in what I did. The release-howto now also describes how to build the image, update the translations, and make an Etoys-To-Go zip file. Sorry, no screencast this time ;)

I updated the NEWS file but left filling in the details of 4.1.2391 to you:
