The problem is, that it was noticed that non-backwards compatible
changes were committed into svn.
Most noticeably a complete rewrite of the "ma" (Masked Array) package was done.
As a consequence it was decided, they no one would be interested in
"temporarily taking those changes out" "just to release 1.0.5".

Instead the next release will be called 1.1 -- which is (only; rather
still) "mostly" compatible with 1.0.x
What used to be referred to a the 1.1 version, that can break more
stuff, to allow for a cleaner design, will now be 1.2
