A ton of work has been done for this "minor" release. For reference, I try to highlight 10-12 of the most exciting changes in a release video, at that price point.
Not to mention that these release notes are incomplete, and don't include things like Doc's much anticipated multipage features, which (I think) will also go into the 1.2 release.
These things are a BIG DEAL for the community.
In the end, we're going to have to choose which of all the amazing new features and fixes will go into the video - we will not struggle to find things to highlight.
I can assure everyone there's /at least/ as much work that will happen for this video as for the last two videos. Indeed, there will be *more* work with this video to re-do some of the style, change the music, and add more UX motion graphics, which people in the project have been asking for to elevate Inkscape's videos to the level of Blender's, for example.
The video also includes animation of the about screen contest winner's art. This is an important community building facet of each release, and should go in the video.
With a year's worth of work from so many of our dedicated developers, UX folks, etc, it seems a shame to say this is a minor release, and treat it like a second class citizen in regards to the previous two.
Just some thoughts to help make the decision more clear vs deliverables.
