    I am just curious. Why mingus for WP1.2?
    Is that because Matt is fond of Mingus, Charles?

    That would be my guess, Charles Mingus is arguably the best bassist ever. He can take just about anything, whether it is gospel, jazz or whatever, and weave it into a masterpiece that delights the senses.

    Well, Matt is himself a Jazz musician, and enjoys everything Jazz.
    Naming finale WP releases after Jazz legends is, as I understand, sort of a habit :) Bird was considered for 1.2, but Mingus was chosen.

    The next version should be called Spike - after the late, great, Spike Robinson.
