Hi,

This is a maintenance release with mostly bugfixes.

,--------,

| - changes:
|   - increased sup_dest_names_size
|   - partial support for TTC
|   - enable mktexpk by default
|   - patch #2087: Support for CMap namespace
|   - \pdfshellescape is 2 if restricted shell escapes are enabled.
| - bugfixes:
|   - segfault when processing certain TTF fonts
|   - jpg image resolution not set in some cases
|   - \pdfobj file {foo} for files foo that don't end with '\n'
|   - bugfix #4289: \primitive\pdfoutput cannot be queried

there are still some minor bugs which will not be fixed in 1.40.10 yet, since
this release is to be compatible with TL09.
