Subject Re: Repair of tombstones

I would not make any bets on 1.1. Ironically 1.1 seems to be fairly stable
and 1.2.X has been a bit "hairly" in terms of the releases and the scope of
the bugs fixed in each of the minors. However not having many shiny new
buttons makes the release less attractive I guess.
