Release of Cacti 1.2.5

Thank you everyone who are using Cacti and especially those helping to make Cacti better!

For additional details check out the README located on GitHub.

IMPORTANT: GitHub's development branch will be changing to facility
the 1.3.x development.

This means that starting from August, the 'develop' branch will be archived
to a branch named '1.2.x'. Any future bug fixes for the 1.2.x code base will be
committed there and duplicated within the 'develop' branch for 1.3.x

If you have any production systems which currently utilise the 'develop' as a
way of keeping up to date with the 1.2.x code, you should use the 'git checkout
1.2.x' command to switch branches before September.

At the beginning of September, the current 1.3.0-dev branch will be merged
into 'develop' to become the primary development branch. As such, any system
using 'git pull' to update will automatically be moved to 1.3.0's development
code if they are on the 'develop' branch.


Active development of Cacti is located on GitHub! Join us in making Cacti better, submit issues, fork and submit pull requests!
