That's correct. I know Greg is working to have 1.3.0 out before or
around the same time as our 1.8.1 comes out.

Unless I'm mistaken the only issue that required a Serf upgrade to
resolve was the Windows single sign on functionality. The behavior
change that fixes that requires Serf 1.3.0 because the Serf devs
considered it a new feature and not just a fix. We decided not to
raise the requirement to Serf 1.3.0 since that issue impacts a narrow
group of users.
Another point Serf 1.3.0 is switching to SCons and so I really don't
want to require that version because it will almost certainly slow our
updates reaching our users, since packagers will have to adjust their
packaging to drive SCons rather than configure/make or serfmake.
