You yourself may not be, but some of us still are. Again, if there are
enough people who aren't proud about the level of support to make the
statement incorrect, then changing it should be considered.[1]
However, considering the ratio of people {developers} who agree (~7
{5}) with what it says to the people who don't (~2 {1}) in this thread
alone, it seems unlikely that enough people disagree to cause the
statement to be false and force a change.

announcements should be altered after they've been sent, but that's
"Facts" are the refuge of people unwilling to reassess what they hold
to be "True".
