But you don't have to wait, if you want to stay on bleeding edge, you
know how to do that.
Just go to hudson and dowload freshly built 1.3 image.

Because if you can pick any image at any moment and declare it new release,
then i don't understand why do we need releases at all?
What makes release to be release , when you can download latest
version at any moment?

That's why i saying that from release to release cleanup and fixes is
good, but there should be some major functional changes,
which worth to be labeled as a new version.
And if you don't have them, then there is no point to make a release.
