I decided to push back the next release by a week since I didn't hear back on the DRI2CreateDrawable2 issue yet; I wanted more time to go through the list of changes from the past 2 months on master; and I wanted to give people more time to send cherry-pick requests.  Don't worry, 1.12 is scheduled through at least XDS, and there will probably be a couple non-scheduled updates after that.

Since Debian is interested in 1.12, please do send cherry-pick requests for any changes you are interested in, so other distros can benefit and we don't end up in a situation where all the major distros have complex, disjoint patchsets.

Ok, so then what do we do about this?  Is it really important enough to break ABI, even considering that 1.13 is just around the corner?  I'd think not, but I'm willing to listen to arguments.
