Ok, lets do a low level release to our immediate communities, but not
the full blown PR. For our project is it important to keep on the
metronome of releases, so I am strongly against skipping this release.

Holger, did you upload this package to the site, or if not, can someone
do this. Also, has this fixed package been tested at all? Once others
weigh in, I will just send out a short announcement saying that this is
a new release with more art, we have a planet site, etc...

But then, we can plan for 0.14 being a good big release. Seems that our
even number releases are the bigger ones, and the odd are more
experimentatal or broken...must be subconscious.
