I think these two sides of this debate sum it up quite well.  We can't
please everyone with every release.  I hear what people are saying about
bugs and stability issues.  At the same time I also know that the vast
majority of the feedback we have received on this release has been positive.
Remember that only a percentage of our customers are on this list, and we
receive a lot of feedback directly too.

Now that the hard work for this new release cycle is out of the way, we will
do a series of point releases to fix bugs and provide greater feature
completeness.  The first of those will smooth out the handful of rough edges
in 2.7 that have been reported, and then we'll be tackling some other areas
that have attracted feedback for a longer period of time.  The first such
point release is right around the corner now, so please wait patiently for a
short while as we get that together.

Kind regards,
