Dear Maintainers,

In Testing, currently packaged version is 1.12.1 while stable upstream
is at 1.13.1 with 1.14.0 scheduled for 2nd of March (5 days from now).

Versions 1.13 and 1.14 offer substantial amount of improvements, too
many to list them all. I have picked only some notable ones:

- #7165: Connections aren't actually closed when closing a protocol connection
- #7005: panic: nil pointer dereference because (*db.Lowlevel)getMetaAndCheck() returns nil
- #7076: File not detected due to watching reporting events on old, deleted path
- #7231: panic: deadlock detected at fmut
- #5426: Old device removed from introducer isn't removable from other devices
- #7267: GUI log tailing is broken if closed when scrolled up
- #7280: Stopped folder not synchronizing after a rescan
- #7273: Data requests block adding new folder
- #7268: Data requests block each other, and some API requests, due to casefs lock contention
- #4224: Editable default values for folders, devices 
- #5187: Remove pending folders if remote device no longer announces them
- #7270: Data requests block API requests that also touch the filesystem

Most importantly, v1.14 introduces concept of "Untrusted device" where
several clients can exchange data with sync-server in the middle has no
visibility into cleartext. It also obfuscates directory structure and
file names.

More details here: 

Would it be possible to have v1.14.0 packaged in Bullseye?

Thank you.
