Cocoon had his own problems, nobody denies it. My own opinion is that a very long gap since
minor release (btw. 2.2.0 is minor release but I guess it should be called major) has hurt
us in 
several ways, including this "losing user perspective".

Anyway, we have finally released it and now it's time for improvement only. As I said in another

mail, I think it's a great chance for you, users, to help us with recovering lost user perspective.
