I've just been having a look through the changes between 1.2.11 and 1.2.12.

There seems to be some things that appear to be "new"/unused features as opposed to minor bug fixes.

For example, there's a new 'json' api that isn't used ( https://github.com/mantisbt/mantisbt/blob/master-1.2.x/core/json_api.php ) within the core code.

Ignoring the fact that my personal view would probably be that whilst we do need a json api, we need to look at it properly bla bla bla (along side webservices), surely this is something that should go into master and not be back-ported to a 1.2 release.

(P.S. my logic for saying this is that, if we move to 'exceptions',  json_error_handler becomes a deprecated function)

However, It's more highlighting the wider issue that in the past we've used the release branch for bugfixes *only*, with new features going into our master branch. 

I know it does't help that we've got different views on 'master', but I'm also not sure whether adding new features into master-1.2.x helps either.

P.S. there's also some new features from Rombert/Damien that whilst i'd state the same above point about releases, are probably features that would work in 1.3/next/2.0/1.2 etc without any changes.

I don't have a tarball of 1.2.12 and 1.2.11 handly atm, how long is the diff between the two versions?

changes, is there anything we're still missing to start the release
