True, we could just rename RC2 to final and be done with it. Trouble is,
we haven't released any 1.3.x RC publically yet, so we haven't got to
the point of being able to evaluate any feedback, much less exited the
soak period (or does the A.B.0 soak period start when we cut the RC
rather than when we release it?).

I don't know about the others, but I reviewed this one. It's a
significant, non-trivial change to the way the Java bindings work
internally, and a fix to a crash bug that should show up any time
you call back into the Java bindings as a result of a notification.
Fortunately, that doesn't appear too common, but Subclipse triggers it
(see http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2005-11/0225.shtml).

I'd prefer to see it in 1.3.0 rather than 1.3.1, but only because it
feels a little too complex to slip into a bugfix release. The Java
bindings are still usable without it.

Regards,
Malcolm
