I don't think I'm off with my comment. Either wml is
professional software (it is!) or it is a toy to play (it
is not!). I do not want to compare wml with MS in matters
of making money. But software development is software
development is software development. There is no short-cut
to the release (or you tell me and I'm glad to know).

I just suggest to leave a working release untouched, just
fix the bugs which might appear and put all new ideas in
the development releases.
Shall the brave test beta-versions but the worker do need a
stable version.

That's exactly the point. All the little quirks and
features should first go to a development version and not
to the release version. That's what I am saying.

Denis makes a great job. If he'd follow my suggestion he
would be the first to benefit from this split up!

Yes. I'm still using 1.7.4. I wait until I have the time to
test the new release with my sources.
