SDL 1.1.7 has been released! 

SDL 1.2 is going to be the next stable SDL release. SDL 1.1.7 is the
pre-release for SDL 1.2, which means that only bug fixes will be accepted
between now and the final SDL 1.2 release. Please test your code with SDL
1.1.7 to make sure that there are no lingering bugs and to prepare your code
for the official 1.2 release. A full list of API changes since SDL 1.0 is
available in the "WhatsNew" file in the SDL source distribution.
