I am not implying that they do not support 1.4 but you did prove my 
point that 1.2 is more stable and 1.4 has not been "Put through its 
paces".  I would not recommend running a high volume call center on it.  
Sure, if your PBX takes 50 or so calls a day, it's probably wonderful.

If you have a 15,000 average call volume a day and 400+ agents, hmmmmm, 
I think 1.2 might be a little wiser choice.  Just personal notes from 
the trenches, not from the media machines or talking heads.
