This update contains a large number of fixes but they are mostly
cosmetic issues or build and platform quirks, the only true bug fixes
affected DPI, XSettings and a rare clipboard crash.

There is no urgency to update if your were not affected by those issues.

Warning: the 1.x branch is only really meant to be used by those who are
unable to upgrade because they are stuck on an outdated operating system
like CentOS 6.x, Mac OS < 10.10, Windows XP, etc.
The 1.x binaries for Mac OS and MS Windows are known to contain a number
of security vulnerabilities. This is only going to get worse with time.
Use at your own risk.
The situation is marginally better when running on Linux distributions
as long as the vendors continue to provide security updates.
