I agree with Markus on that one , I am really a “release first update
later” kind of guy. Which of course means also that I am against the idea
of having only 1 release per year for Pharo. The why has been explained in
myriads of online blog posts because I am far from the only one to believe
in this. This why I never stuck with the stable release , I never saw any
use for me or anyone else. Quite the contrary I think it hurts the
development process by delaying bug reports.
