The website currently still doesn't call 1.1.2 stable, so I simply haven't upgraded to it yet. * Latest release is 1.1.2. * Current stable maintenance release is 1.0.3. I think many others will share thus view, because it's best to rely on the developer for that information, i.e. whether some code is deemed stable or not.
