About this release. 

We integrated 30 fixes (the rounded number is completely casual) and integrated some tools that users feedback showed as necessary, specially the inclusion of OmniBrowser as part of the core for 1.4.  As a result of all this changes and fixes, the stability of this version is a lot better and we are really happy with it. 

Structural changes to the image: 

- Backport configurations browser from 2.0. This will easy the loading of packages for everybody, specially newcomers. 
- Integrated ProfStef. Again, useful for newcomers. 
- Integrated Spotlight. Easy to find classes and methods. 
- Integrated OmniBrowser. Nautilus will wait to 2.0 to be core, but it is still loadable.
- Integrated Keymapping. This is in fact a sub-product of the inclusion of Spotlight, but the framework is powerful and it deserves its inclusion too :)
- Updated Zinc to latest version.
