It's not as this specific case would be a problem anymore since I
basically took care of the string freeze exception announcement, it's
mainly for the future and all other developers as well. Ubuntu
translators and documentation community have been battling with all
kind of package uploads after string freeze release by release, and I
simply took an opportunity to point out an example so that more
developers would become aware of what the UI freeze means for
translations and docs team, and basically the whole Ubuntu experience.

But just as a note, after 1.1.3 the following new or changed (some
ever so slightly) strings were added in 1.1.4, resulting in those
being untranslated for all languages (until teams catch up, if/when
they notice it) and documentation being potentially out of date:

"The devices connected to with your personal cloud network are listed below"
"Stop sharing on Ubuntu One..."
"Stop sharing this folder on Ubuntu One"
"Stop synchronizing this folder with Ubuntu One."
"Synchronize this folder with Ubuntu One."
"Copy Ubuntu One public URL"
"Copy the Ubuntu One public URL for this file to the clipboard."
"Stop publishing via Ubuntu One"
"No longer share this file with everyone."
"Publish via Ubuntu One"
"Make this file available to anyone."

1.1.3 was btw also released after the UI freeze, but that was close enough.
