We, the stable team, are planning to release 1.2.10 at the beginning of
next week. 1.2.10 has fixes for quite some prominent bugs that were
unfortunately introduced with the bugfixes in 1.2.9 and contains many
I kindly ask everyone to not do any non-trivial fixes to the stable branch
(not even bugfixes) until the release. With 1.2.9 some bugs were fixed
right before the release, and the fixes introduced new problems. We need
some time to test this candidate. That's why I'd also like to ask you if
you could please test and see if you can find serious problems that could
prevent the release.
Translators, if you haven't done so already, please submit your updated
translations before the end of this weekend so they can be included.
