1.3.0 is not publically available at the moment for several reasons, including 
issues with file loading, stability (its not bad) and the wish by the devel 
team to have some opportunity to do some refactoring of code. 

Using  1.3.x would not really benefit end users at the moment, as major 
surgery is going on under the hood, so to speak. When we speak of 1.3.x, it 
means the next version... release date unknown at the moment. There will be 
several releases of 1.3.x each adding features and bug fixes...

That said 1.2.x will see contiune to see attention, bug fixes and backports 
where possible ( the OO draw importer was backported from 1.3.0). Moreover, 
except for a couple of minor things, there is no missing functionality 

Hope that helps to clarify things...
