This question makes me wonder, just why there are so many LO versions and frequent new releases. I can't keep up, and I find myself torn about upgrading. I want the latest and greatest, but I've had problems with newer versions resurrecting old bugs.

There is a rationale behind our release schedule. Ultimately just because the version is out, doesn't mean users have to upgrade, each release has a purpose.
