Dear Martin,

Thanks for the reply.

Will pull latest release and test.  I have modified few things in the
version(1.2.0) which i am using right now, for example warning fixes
for mips platform etc.  I was planing to use 1.4.x version but never
tried.. I think this is the right time to move to 1.4.x...
