OK - I just renamed 1.1.1 to 1.2, and 1.2 to 1.3. This means that API changes are OK. Since
we're still incubating and don't have a strong user base, it probably doesn't make sense to
put a lot of effort into backward compatibility at the moment. In the future, we'll probably
want to take a more structured approach.

old one when we release v1.2.
