As far as 1.1.12 was concerned, I took care of the source, and Felix the MacOS 
binaries while there were no Windows binaries. So I guess there is no real 
news here. Anyway, many thanks for releasing 1.1.0 though 1.1.11 on my behalf.

By the way, I am bored with acting as the security contact, and this has 
impacted the responsiveness already. I will give up this role on January 2nd 
next year unless someone else steps up for the position sooner. I will have 
been filling the post as a volunteer for 5 years. I find this is more than 

Tasks include mostly interacting with reporters, analyzing and fixing bugs, 
editing advisories, backporting patches to stable branches and answering 
stupid questions from few corporate IT services. Most of the time there is 
nothing to do, but you never know when there is something.

Best regards,

Rémi Denis-Courmont
