There was the dict-server startup problem, which we reported and which
should be fixed now (I still need to test your fix).
Then there are some (undocumented?) changes in the dict api (and the
changed dict backend configuration).
And then there are some more dict relates problems/changes causing the
metadata/annotations plugin to fail in certain situations -- Bernhard
Herzog will report/discuss them in detail soon, in case we decide to use
So the stuff we stumbled upon was all dict related till now, but on the
other hand we haven't done much with 1.2 besides trying to get our
changes to work with it...

This sounds promising.

Ok, I'll report the results of our own evaluation, soon.
