The next CD version will be 1.2.0.  We don't have plans for when this
will be yet.  Even versions are supposed to be tested and stable.  Odd
versions are works in progress (i.e., untested and unstable).

Unless you're having a specific problem, there is no need to "upgrade"
to the net release.  Many individual components of the net release,
like "bash", actually come from the CD.

FYI, we're working on a way to get upgrades to the CD customers but
we don't have anything concrete yet.
