Development version increment.
Release announcement at: http://www.zsh.org/mla/users/2007/msg00331.html
The multibyte support in the development branch is almost complete.
It worths mentioning that all the major distributions excepts fedora (watching their bug reports, they doesn't seem to have *any* interest about zsh) are using the development version.
In a question in zsh workers mailing list (specifically about fedora) the zsh maintainer Peter Stephenson replied with these words.
"What I'm looking for before producing a new stable release (which will probably be version 5) are signs that the multibyte support in 4.3 is complete enough that most users aren't going to find significant gaps. It doesn't have to be flawless. At some point we need to decide that things are working well enough. With Linux, I think that's already the case, but I'm less clear about the state of other systems I don't see."
