You're absolutely right. 1.0.2 was ready to go quite some time ago but
several bugs were found as we were releasing. We decided, as a team,
that we couldn't ship with the bugs that were found, so we elected to
fix them and delay the release. I think that was the right decision.
We should only release when we feel the software is ready, not when
some ultimately arbitrary day looms.

them as a conduit for judging this stuff.
