Exactly, but that doesn't mean development continues. 1.4 has been in
development way before September 28th even, since most wc-replacements work
was done in August and September, lagging a bit in October.

Because developers have limited time, development doesn't need to stop: I
currently have very limited time to do anything on Subversion, but you don't
wait to develop/release the serf code, right?

Erik.
