Yes, if it were "current" (i.e. the trunk) it wouldn't be "stable". It 
was branched ~2 months ago.

This seems such a common tendency of the myfaces team, to be eager to 
get the new functionality out and released. The problem with this is 
that, despite lengthening your release cycle, you are still having 
trouble with release stability. In order to achieve this stability, you 
either need to be willing to branch for extensive testing before a 
release (even though it is meanwhile "getting out of date"). Or, you can 
take a look at ideas like Paul Spencer's idea for following a Tomcat 
style of release.

If you're going to be releasing code that is only a few days or a week 
fresh from the trunk, then you're going to need to start releasing 
maintenance updates to gradually add to their stability. I'm just a 
humble user, but this is my 2 cents...
