Or even in 1.3... (just added 3 fixes today).

The thing is that there are indefinit unknown problems. If we wait a week, for sure someone finds another.

"Release" does not mean "Bug free", because "bug free" does not exist.
(and it is even harder in a system with a huge, historical code base and an undefined feature set... I am
always amazed to learn new features that people seem to not be able to life without that I did not even
know existed. How can we gurantee that these don't break? We just can't).
