this conclusion is based on what? Can you explain it please further?

Raphael, you should keep in mind that we had a 3.4 beta already last 
year. We have removed things or have replaced things. And for both do we 
have tested it since weeks. If we figure further critical issues than we 
will fix it and will potentially move the date.

Non critical issues will be moved to later because we have to set 
priorities. We have always more issues that we can fix.

And I hope that we all agree that we have to provide a release to signal 
that our project is alive and can deliver.

I would strongly recommend that we plan to release as soon as possible. 
We might have a missing string or not 100% updated help files. But that 
is not different to any other release in the past. The most important 
thing is stability, that we don't crash and things work as expected.

it's the same for me and hopefully all of and I don't say that we will 
release it anyway.

Fine that you will focus on QA now and that you will help us to find 
critical issues.
