If we'd maintain 0-11-fix along with HEAD and 0-12-fix, we'd have more
branches than developers. Common sense tells me that's not a good plan.

(one could argue that with just HEAD and 0-12-fix we already have more
branches than _active_ developers, but that's a different story)

Seriously, maintaining branches is a huge timesink. Let's declare
0-11-fix dead and move on.

Well, bug fixes and (very) minor new features.  You can find the planned
changes for 0.12.1 at and 
for later 0.12.x releases at

If anyone seems anything he'd like to work on, feel free to dig in.
