I am very sceptical about the so-called benefits of
releasing on a strict time-schedule.
The process seems to favour new features over bug fixes.
I thought the old way was better - release it when it's ready.

The problem with this method is - it is *never* ready (meaning, bug-free)...

I like the new release schedule... it ensures that new features are introduced faster, and get better testing... everything simply speeds up.

Yes, it does create some potential for breakage, but as long as you are prepared (can roll back if you get bit by a show-stopper), it shouldn't be a real problem. Also, what may be a show-stopper bug for one person is irrelevant to another (not everyone uses the same features).
Good point about show stoppers. Also, what is a minor annoyance for one may be disastrous for another because of the relative importance of the feature to each.
