Awesome, thanks for picking this up!

1.14.x would make it slightly easier for downstream consumers, for two

- Downstream distros (Fedora, Ubuntu) are already shipping git
  snapshots versioned as 1.13.x. Going back to 1.12.x would create
  more work for them and add to the confusion.

- New API: people tend to expect no API changes in point releases, so
  that they can switch back and forth between 1.12.x releases without
  recompiling, for example. cairo_surface_set_device_scale() is new in
  this release and that would warrant a 1.14.x release in my opinion.
