I have promoted the PROJ 4.6.1 RC3 to being the PROJ 4.6.1 final release
since there don't seem to be any serious problems with it.  From the news

4.6.1 Release Notes

  o Upgraded to EPSG 6.17 version for nad/epsg.  Also corrected the precision
    problem introduced in the last version.

  o Added logic for tmerc projection to fail rather than return crazy results
    if more than 90 degrees away from the central meridian (#5).  This change
    may only be temporary till a more comprehensive solution is found.

  o Fixed handling of extra text in cs2cs.


  o The eqc projection has been generalized to include a latitude of origin.

  o Added the glabsgm (Gauss Laborde / Sphere Geometric Mean) projection,
    and gstmerc variation.

  o nad/IGNF init catalogue created.

  o added the ntf_r93.gsb datum shift file.

  o Add /Op in nmake.opt compile options to avoid VC7 optimization bug (#12)

  o Fix testvarious test script so it works properly when grid files available

I have also added a redirect from http://proj.osgeo.org/ to our
trac web site, and I'd like to consider this url our 'public identity'
in the future.
