While you download a program from SourceForge you can leave your email to
get updates for that specific program. It's called 'keep me updated', and
you can see that at the bottom of all projects' pages.

Only if you subscribed to that service you might get an email from
SourceForge when a new release is made available. Actually we just made 4.1
the new default, so people might have get that email now.
