Release notes - Version 4.0.2

The Timer used for scheduling expand/collapse/toggle is now static and created on demand, to reduce the number of idle threads. The timer thread is also run as a daemon thread, as to not prevent the JVM from shutting down. By configuring a ScheduleStrategy in the SlideTabBuilder, another approach can be used for scheduling.
