if you want the 'stable' stuff, stick with 1.2.x, if
you want new features and such, go for 2.6/1.9.x ...

hehe, well, yes, and actually, there were no reports
regarding 1.2.x (neither good nor bad) which I consider
a good sign ...
I'm not planning on 'reviving' 1.3.x unless there is
a really good reason for doing so (i.e. somebody pays
for backporting 1.9.x stuff to 1.3.x, or 2.6 will
merge with 2.4 ;)

ngnet in 2.4 kernel? well, you can wish ...

yes, 1.2.x will be maintained until the last user
switched to 1.9.x (or 2.0.x later), please keep me
up to date of migrations ;)
