Though I only dabble on the development side I'd like to support this
view.  3.5.13 is a superb piece of work with many improvements, and I
am running it on my main stable machine which says something about my
trust for it.  Congratulations to everyone involved !

But a few regressions have crept into 3.5.13, particularly my Javascript
one which is turning out to prevent quite a number of AJAX based sites
from working, and one or two others that also seem to be related to cmake
not picking up libraries (haven't bugged them yet as I have been busy
this week).  I think these may disappoint people who come to Trinity as
the JS one at least is quite visible.

I'm certainly willing to help on a "papercut" release and feed
the fixes forwards to the main branch, to leave the main devs free to
tackle features in 3.5.14.
