The best way to find and fix the Windows bugs is to get the code into the hands of the Windows
users, and to do that we must release v2.4.0 as soon as possible.

Trying to delay the release indefinitely until an arbitrary list of bugs is fixed is counterproductive
- you're just keeping the code out of the hands of those who are able to either describe the
problem in enough detail that it can be reproduced, or those who could potentially fix the
problem and submit the fix to us.

The "dot zero" in "2.4.0" is well understood.
