We need to be aware of them, but, while its hard for a user to know what we 
know already, we might implement something one day that breaks another thing 
until we fix it. A bug like this is a little useless as we already know about

Still relavent. IE, bugs must be know, but no new features are going into

We want 1.3.x to be very stable and usable for real work pretty soon. I would 
think that when we release 1.3.0 we would hope you can actually use it 
without a worry. Right now, apart from a few things not working the best, you 
can use it for real work. I expect once I do my current magazine, I will 
never use 1.2 again for real work. Of course, as you say, 1.4 will be the 
"stable" version. We will maintain 1.2, at least until 1.2.2, and we will see 
how things go after that.

Have fun. :)
