Right now it looks like 1.2 beta releases will start next month.  We
are pretty much in the wrap-up phase of 1.2 development - the only
remaining major bits left to commit from our private repos are to
add the I18N wrapping of all command-line output, the rest of the
notification stuff, some I18N and custom options for PPDs, and the
last of the browse protocol changes.

We also have some performance-tuning, documentation, OSX changes, and
bug fixes to finish up, but those can happen after the beta test
period starts.
