AFAIK it's not that kind of announcement.

The centos-release-gluster40 rpm is just a kind of meta package with the
/etc/yum.repos.d/... file(s) to be able to install gluster (4.0 in this
case) from the SIG.

And when that package gets pushed then notice of said push is sent to
the SIG mailing list.

This is not a general GlusterFS-4.0 Is Available announcement.
