Subject: Announcing: mcuboot release 1.4.0-rc1

I would like to announce the first release candidate for MCUboot
1.4.0-rc1.

https://github.com/JuulLabs-OSS/mcuboot/releases/tag/v1.4.0-rc1

## Version 1.4.0

The 1.4.0 release of MCUboot primarily adds support for multi-image
booting. With this release, MCUboot can manage two images that can be
updated independently. With this, it also supports additions to the
TLV that allow these dependencies to be specified.

Multi-image support adds backward-incompatible changes to the format
of the images: specifically adding support for protected TLV entries.
If multiple images and dependencies are not used, the images will be
compatible with previous releases of MCUboot.

### About this release

- Fixed CVE-2019-5477. This fixes an issue with a dependency used in
the generation of the documentation on github.
- Numerous code cleanups and refactorings
- Documentation updates for multi-image features
- Update imgtool.py to support the new features
