Because 7 RCs is getting to "ludicrous speed".

There are such things as Known Issues, just spell out the known issues in
the release blog post or on the Wiki page for the Installer and say they're
in JIRA for the next dot release.

Its been way too long to not release this and this app will play a nice
role in getting people up and running with the SDK with minimal friction.

Just release it already, I'm sure there are other bugs dying to be exposed
but they can't be until more people can use it.

We know these issues exist, and we know we are addressing them in a point
release, I don't see these issues as showstoppers.
