icedtea-web 1.2.3, 1.3.2 Released!



Newest incremental releases in 1.2.x & 1.3.x series for icedtea-web were released! Stay tuned for the much-improved icedtea-web 1.4, in about a month.

From the release announcement by Jiri Vanek (http://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/distro-pkg-dev/2013-April/022790.html)
The changes well... are as they are. Not much, but at least something - as development was strongly 
focused to HEAD.
 From this point of view, I strongly encourage every user to move to 1.4 as smoothly and quickly as 
possible (will be based on future head anyway).
Also please note that 1.2 is getting close to end of its life.
