This is a big improvement, but... :)

If the QA is good enough, it would be a little better to have feature
releases every month or two, support only the latest or two latest
feature releases before a breaking change (but not support anything
older than a year) and have a new release between feature releases for
every bugfix or two.

Every feature merge would be done on the first one or two weeks, the
remaining time being used to test before the release.

If QA is good enough, there will be almost no bugfix release. Anyone
wanting to upgrade to fix any issue would always be using the latest
feature release (with any bugfix) for it's major version number.

This would be much easier to support leaving much more time to make
QA good enough.

Cheers,
Marco
