Since Dan builds from Fedora, he gets whatever version is in the Fedora
side that he builds from.  Fedora 18 is on the 0.10.2.x series, with due soon; Fedora 19 is on the 1.0.5.x branch, with due
soon.  Since the original build was from F18 and Dan didn't build
anything from F19 yet, it may be faster to do the refresh from Fedora 18
than to figure out whether Fedora 19 is even buildable for mingw.  Or,
if he builds from the (still-in-beta) Fedora 20, you'd get a build based
off of 1.1.2.

Development happens upstream, but we DO backport patches to the stable
release branches that Fedora uses.
