BuildMaster 4.2.4 Has Been Released

We just shipped BuildMaster 4.2.4. It's a maintenance release of BuildMaster 4.2 which means that there is minimal risk to upgrading from an earlier 4.2. However, if you're planning to upgrade from a version prior to 4.2, make sure to read the appropriate upgrade notes.
