KDevelop 1.3

Hi all,

My company sent me for 6 weeks to southern France to work in another
company there, so I cannot do anything for kdevelop until I come back.
(I am using mutt via ssh to send mail from my company.)

Anyway, I would prefer to call 1.3 the next release.

For 1.1 and 1.2, there used to be a beta release and a few weeks latter a stable release.
I think it was good because we had time to make sure everything was fine.

The contrary could be true. When users see 1.2.1 they could think of it as just
a bug fix release.

If we make a beta release first, then we can have time to find someone willing to
make a 1.3 splashscreen.

I like very much the kdevelop splashscreens and it would be nice to have
another one to add to our collection :-) By the way, we should make a web page
with all the splashscreens if there isn't one. This way we could publicly thank
the splashscreen designers.
