Howdy hackers,

I know you're all itching to get back to feature development, so now
that 1.0.2 is out, I've created a new 1.0 branch in git.

That means:

 - git master is open for new (major) features
   and API additions, and all those changes
   that one might not want to push during a
   bug-fixing cycle

 - git master will remain backwards
   API/ABI-compatible with 1.0.x

 - git master version numbering has changed
   to 1.1.x, which will lead to 1.2.0 towards
   the end of the year. 1.1.x should be
   regarded as a development series, so it
   is theoretically possible that new API
   added in 1.1.2 is still changed in 1.1.3,
   but once 1.2.0 is out it's stable for good.
   This only applies to newly-added API of
   course, no "old" 1.0.x API may be changed.

 - the plugin move window is open now
   in git master

 - further bug-fix 1.0.x releases will be
   made from the 1.0 branch

 - please cherry-pick any applicable low-risk
   fixes from master into the 1.0 branch!

If there's stuff you intend to hack on for this cycle, please set a
target milestone of 1.1.x in bugzilla and/or add it to

for more visibility.

Happy hacking!
