It's good enough to have updated the version number.  I think people will get the idea that this one is better.

I made those the version and the 2 -> two change.

Is there something specific to say for the other text?  This version does improve compatibility and we've continued the core C++ code cleanups.  And it does point to the NEWS file for more info.  Is there anything else to do?

The README file installed by MXE Octave still references 4.2.  The version should be updated and the description of what is new should change as well.  Also, where the text references "2 versions" of the BLAS library the number "2" should be written out as "two".  This is the general convention for numbers in English in the range 0-9.
