Yes, I think we did a poor release this time and I feel guilty of doing
the release without testing it like I did with the previous releases.
And I totally forgot to get feedback from the users about the current
release like we did in previous releases as well.
We should take care that we do not forget this with the next release.

Same here.

Hmm, yes, but it seems that the interest in a release has decreased for
this release and I fear no matter how long we delay and wait for
resources it would be very hard to get real feedback *and* work on the
feedback by fixing things. But we should try it anyway.
