Congratulations! WooHoo! Now to tear into it! :)

Is there no way to create a step release? A 1.3 with a smaller
footprint... The reason I ask is that I have over 100 firewalls to
upgrade remotely! I know 1.3b7 is fairly stable, but that "b" is still
a bit scary... And I am trying to think how I can write upgrade
documentation that will be approved by the PHBs with a "b" in them... :-)
