What is the problem?  Why can't we be honest?  Why even mention
anything about stability in public announcements!?!!

We are honest and transparent. Each new version is more stable than the
previous one of the same family, and solves bugs and regressions, as we
say in the announcement (which is not distributed as a press release for
minor releases).

We never compare the two branches, because it should be clear that the
older one is more tested (and thus more stable). We say "fixes bugs and
regressions and improves stability", which is true. We do not say "is
the more stable release", which would not be true.

In any case, it would be better to suggest a different wording which
fits the communication objectives than to blame the announcement, as we
will continue to announce every version and missing any suggestion we
will continue to use the actual - or a very similar - wording.

Best, Italo
