...and your point is?

DistroWatch doesn't currently watch "current" or "stable" branches of
Owl, it only watches releases.  Our last release was 1.1.

And to answer another possible question, -- no, the project hasn't
been idle for the last month.  In fact, development has been more
active than during the months before.  But as we proceeded to break
things severely by updating to new gcc, glibc, auto*, and RPM (just to
name a few), the publicly visible Owl-current has been frozen until
the worst issues introduced into the "real current" are resolved.

Yes, those who want stability are better to stick to 1.1-stable rather
than update to the next Owl-current snapshot we'll put out.
