CubicWeb 3.13 has been developed for a while and include a bunch of cool
stuff. This includes:

* generate and handle Apache's modconcat compatible URLs, to minimize number of
  HTTP requests necessary to retrieve JS and CSS files, along with a new
  cubicweb-ctl command to generate a static 'data' directory so it can be served
  by a front-end instead of CubicWeb

* major facet enhancements:

  o nicer layout and visual feedback when filtering is in-progress

  o new RQLPathFacet to easily express new filters that are more than one hop
    away from the filtered entities

  o a more flexibile API, usable in cases where it wasn't previously possible

* some form handling refactorings and cleanups, notably introduction of a new
  method to process posted content, and updated documentation

* support for new base types : BigInt, TZDateTime and TZTime (in 3.12 actually 
  <F3>for those two)

* write queries optimization, and several RQL fixes on complex queries
  (e.g. using HAVING, sub-queries...), as well as new support for CAST() function
  and REGEXP operator

* datafeed source and default CubicWeb xml parsers:

  o refactored into smaller and overridable chunks

  o easier to configure

  o make it work

As usual, the 3.13 also includes a bunch of other minor enhancements,
refactorings and bug fixes. Please download and install CubicWeb 3.13 and report
any problem on the tracker and/or the mailing-list!
