I sliced and printed a 1 hour print and also sliced and examined the gcode from the sample factory file I posted here. As far as I can tell, the pathing and retraction issues are gone without any changes to slicer settings. Retraction settings looked correct and I didn't see even the weird stuff that was going on in the 4.0.1 gcode. The printed object possibly looks better than the ones I've printed using 4.0.1 before.
This minor release gets my thumbs up now, but my comments about making these versions visible through the in-application check, the web site front page and even the account page still stand. And I agree that at least while people were waiting for 4.1.1, a copy of 4.0.1 should have been available as soon as it was determined that 4.1 had issues.
