lirc 0.9.4c available

Alec Leamas

After the 0.9.4, 0.9.4a and 0.9.4b it is time to release 0.9.4c, a
maintenance release. Major changes includes an overall update to the
girs plugin and a new irtext2udp tool.

Source packages are available at [1], Fedora  preview packages at [2]
and an Ubuntu PPA at [3]. The source packages includes a Debian source
tarball. The official Fedora and Debian packages will be updated shortly
(next week?).

Thanks for patches: Helen Foster, Bengt MÃ¥rtensson. Special thanks to
Craig Treleaven for bringing lirc up to date on MacOS and, not least,
for offering a beer!
