1.0.2 is our Long Term Support branch and continues to be supported. See
this page for our support details:


WRT a new release of 1.0.2, typically we will only do a new release if a
high severity security issue is discovered (or occasionally if there is
a significant bug fix). Low severity defects are published immediately
in git and are made available as part of the next release whenever that
might happen.

In other words, new releases are scheduled on an "as needed" basis as
and when high severity defects are discovered and are typically
announced a few days in advance of the release.
