The information is contained within the announcement, but it is a bit
difficult to figure out what to do from just the list of changes. A more
detailed step-by-step guide, preferably as part of the FAQ would be very
much appreciated.

many years all the way up to 1.3.2-1.

As mentioned above a bit more guidance would be nice.

OK, I am a bit disappointed, but I do have some suggestions. How would
you prefer I post them? In this thread or a new one? All together or one
post per suggestion?

Are you saying it is inappropriate to discuss or that you personally
don't see value in this?
