Hi all,

There have been sporadic reports about crashes with 1.5 in the HAProxy 
mailing list[1][2], which all seem to have been resolved with commit 
0fc36e3. Since the ETA of the next dev release is unknown, and since we 
already have some work queued up for the Debian package, do you think we 
should update the 1.5 branch to snapshot 20130707 that seems to resolve these
issues (and which is generally recommended in the mailing list as "stable") and
make a new release? The changes since 1.5-dev19 are:

$ git log --oneline --until=2013-07-07 v1.5-dev19..
506d050 BUG/MAJOR: http: sample prefetch code was not properly migrated
5b15f90 BUG/MEDIUM: http: "option checkcache" fails with the no-cache header
0fc36e3 BUG/MAJOR: http: don't emit the send-name-header when no server is available
0925026 DOC: minor typo fix in documentation
7af7d59 BUG: counters: third counter was not stored if others unset
4cc1b0d BUG/MINOR: deinit: free fdinfo while doing cleanup
44f6539 DOC: remove the comment saying that SSL certs are not checked on the server side
67db8df MEDIUM: http: add IPv6 support for "set-tos"
2dd1d1a BUG/MINOR: http: fix "set-tos" not working in certain configurations
dc13c11 BUG/MEDIUM: prevent gcc from moving empty keywords lists into BSS
8615c2a MEDIUM: session: disable lingering on the server when the client aborts
430f291 CLEANUP: session: remove event_accept() which was not used anymore

0fc36e3 is the commit that probably fixes these crashes.
