When we've thoroughly tested the latest Developer Preview build and
found that it does everything we need without error.
They test too, and the automated system they're building will help with
a great many potential regressions.
But with any software, and certainly one used is as many different ways
as LC, nothing beats beta testing.

Where did RunRev announce that they're refusing to make another
maintenance build between now and v7?
The radically-enhanced v7 has been in development for some time, during
which they've continued to roll out many new versions of the v6 series.
I haven't seen any indication from them that this will somehow stop -
did I miss something?
