Hi Craig,

Hi Craig,

My snapshot instructions directed me to bump the last digit of the 
release identifier to distinguish this increment from the previous 
snapshot. That earlier snapshot was called The zip names were 
invented by the "snapshot" target of our release scripts and mimic the 
same conventions as the March snapshot.

I believe that is the latest official release and the next 
official release will be 10.1.3.x. At least the date on looks 
right to me: the community hasn't vetted a release since last fall. I 
too am puzzled by and Perhaps these are patch 
distributions, cut off the living, growing end of the 10.1 branch and 
given to targetted customers. Can anyone else shed light on this?
