[mapguide-internals] Release of MGOS 1.2.0

Hi Jason,

Yes, not having daily builds has been an issue from the start.  It looks
like we are in a much better position now to resolve that problem, and
I'm pretty excited about that (especially if this means that I don't
have to manually post builds, and update the download pages). For
whoever takes this on, they should contact me for information on how we
have set up our build and configured InstallShield.  We don't have a
build script available because we use BuildForge but we should be able
to extract the steps required to do a build from that.

I think that we need to look at how reliant we are on your internal
infrastructure to build and package release versions of MGOS.  We're
already highly reliant on your development efforts (duh) but this is
something that I might actually be able to do something about.  If I
manage to stop over-commiting myself, I'm going to start investigating
packagers like NSIS.  I have InstallShield at work, but I'd hate to not
be able to share the configuration in any kind of useful way.
I'd also really like to take Mateusz and Helio up on their offers to
help with continuous builds (buildbot -- maybe it could give us nightly
snapshots too?) and a more flexible build system (cmake) respectively.
I'm not sure that we would be able to pull these efforts together in
time for 1.3, but that sure would be nice.
