This release fixes SA-CONTRIB-2012-103 - Global Redirect - Open Redirect.
This is the first tagged release in a LONG time. Many bug fixes since 1.2. There was a 1.3-alpha (and no official 1.3). I have intentionally skipped 1.3 to bring it into line with the D7 branch which is also now on a 1.4 tagged release. Hopefully we can keep both branches in version-sync.
Changes summary since 1.3-alpha:
(No known issue id) Fix by Dave Reid for incorrect use of hook_help
(No known issue id) Fix by Dave Reid on the test case (getInfo() incorrectly defined)
(No known issue id) Fix by Dave Reid on some test failures
The 1.3-alpha never made it onto the project page due to a Drupal.org policy of not listing "unstable" releases while there is a stable one available. The Git Revision history lists a LOT of additions. See Here for more details: http://drupalcode.org/project/globalredirect.git/shortlog/refs/heads/6.x...
