the timing is unfortunate but there is no good alternative. As the
recent notebook format change in master showed, a git snapshot of 0.13
would be even worse at this point.
I'll provide an official backport of 0.13 for 12.04 when its ready.

I'd like to remind you that the 0.12.1 release would be needed by the
end of this week latest. The archive freezes on the 24. and I need some
time for packaging too.
Preferably with unminified javascript sources or I'll have to repackage it.
