Finally LJ::TextMessage v1.4.8 has been put into LiveJournal's CVS repository.
If I remember correctly, LiveJournal's servers update every day or so from the code stored in CVS, so 1.4.8 should go live within the next day or so, if it hasn't already gone live by the time you see this.
We're really sorry for the delays in getting this sorted. Thank you for being a paid member of LiveJournal.com!
