That is for updates from one minor version to the next minor version.
The current method for updating from A.B.C to A.B+1.Z is this: If Z is
larger or equals Z, then an update is suggested.

I.e. if you're running 4.0.2 and 4.1.0 is available, you won't get the
"update available" message. But when 4.1.2 is available, and you're
still on 4.0.2, then it would suggest the update for 4.1.2

This is the automatic rule that is in effect all the time. What you
refer to is the decision when the new line is declared as "stable even
for conservative" users and when a version is pushed to all users.

But this is not what Pedro meant. It is as he found in the ESC Minutes
- the new version has not been made available via the update method
immediately. So despite 4.1.1 being released and available as final
from the download page, the update-check will not yet suggest it.

This is to have another round of feedback from the various system
configurations that are impossible to cover by QA-Testing alone - even
more so since the Windows and Linux builds have been compiled on a
different machine than before.

The update will be enabled tomorrow - but probably only in the
afternoon, as I have to replace the HD in my system the second time
within two weeks (since the SSD I had in use for only a week after the
old hdd start dying also decided to crap out, so I'll have to replace
that and restore my backup)
