Hello Andreas,
 The plan is to make it stable as soon as possible. No new features that
require significant changes will be included, and my plan is to have it
replace 3.2 by end of summer.

There shouldn't be any issue with the move to 3.3 from 3.2. 

Out of curiosity, what is the major obstacle from abolishing 2.12? Don't
programs compile out of the box with 3.2?
