This is quite difficult now to know exactly from the list of issues
which one have been integrated effectively in 1.2 or not.
Some issues are closed, some other are their fix/enhancements
integrated in the image.
Maybe for future releases, when a fix/enhancements is accepted, the
issue could be tagged with a label like : in1.3
The idea is to be able to extract the list of updates directly from issues.

What do you think about that ?
