Many thanks for all the work...  it's been about two years since the last
release, so it's a huge task even without disk failures etc.

I've uploaded

people using that branch really just want a straighforward upgrade I'll
probably turn it into 4.2.7 within the next few days.

Realistically, anything left will probably have to wait for 4.4.
