Didn't have time to respond yet, which turned out to be good because I agree
with what Bill said. Less typing, less reading! :)

No, the release cycle has not been problematic. The software has been
stable and current capabilities sufficient for our current use case.

Would prefer stable releases that are supported with bug fixes and
security patches for a reasonable amount of time.
