I agree also that there are more important things besides having the latest

I can wait for the next release of (Woody) Stable because when it is

and MDK because they are trying to beat each other on the Desktop or by some
marketing race. I'll trust DB for my real work over the others any day.
The DB developers, etc, I am certain are doing their best to get things
right. DB separates itself from others by adhering to good standards. Its
that reason why I believe there is a delay because they are taking the time
