Please continue supporting version 1.2 if it's possible (and not too much work).

Some people is still using 1.2 due to some problem with 2.x (eg.
horrible compilation problem under GNU/Linux or problems with new
Postgis provider).
And Maestro is a great tool to work with.

Well, obviously this is fine.
Until now 2.x API is largely the same as 1.2 so no problems at all.
Thank you for your work
