Ok, first a clarification that this was not an update from 1.3.3.x, but from a 
1.3.5 release candidate version. was never in the 13.0 repository, 
and will never be, at least not with me as the maintainer.

I do know that upstream recommends using 1.3.3.x, but decided to go for 1.3.5 
anyway, because it is based on Qt4 instead of Qt3, which means easier 
installation and maintenance for both me and the users. Additionally I have 
been working with 1.3.5 enough to say that it works reasonably well.

If someone wants 1.3.3.x instead, he's free to edit either the 12.2 or the 
13.0 SlackBuild himself.

I don't consider a warning to be necessary, since we don't do warnings on 
beta/rc/svn versions either.
