I'm curious what changes are in store for the 1.3 branch. Are there new features or will it be more of a service and polish release? Could we get a post on the 1.3 branch?

From time to time i'm writing quite interesting posts about Symfony on my blog. I would like to ask you what i have to do to put for example my latest post about symfony on"They talked about as" ? Via RSS? Trackback? Something else?
Thank you
