(CC'ing gdal-dev as well, since shapelib at lists.maptools.org has likely lower audience)

I've prepared a release candidate for shapelib 1.4.0.

The changes are:
<b>Release 1.4.0</b>:
<li> Old Makefile build replaced by autoconf/automake (by Sandro Mani)
<li> CMake build system added (by Alan W. Irwin)
<li> Added read support for ESRI .sbn spatial index
<li> Resynchronization with GDAL's Shapefile driver. Mostly cleanups.
     SHPObject and DBFInfo structures extended with new members
<li> Add DBFSetLastModifiedDate() to modify the update date in the .dbf
<li> Add SHPSetFastModeReadObject() to read faster (but shapes got that way
     share state in the handle, so only one shape at a time can be used)
<li> Add SHPRestoreSHX() to recreate a missing .shx from the .shp and
<li> Write DBF end-of-file character 0x1A by default.
     This behaviour can be controlled with the DBFSetWriteEndOfFileChar()

The tarballs are available at:

Please test and report if there are serious issues.
