I've now discussed this with Monty and he decided that 4.0.12 will be the
first one declared as "stable". We did not do it for 4.0.11, mainly
because of the NULL sorting behaviour change, for which we wanted to get
some feedback and testing first (as you already assumed).

We're now focusing on getting our first alpha release of 4.1.0 done - as
soon as this one is out (hopefully next week), 3.23.56 and 4.0.12 are next
in my queue (not sure in which order).
