Hi :)
This is exactly why most normal users would call the "Fresh" branch

If "Fresh" is 'sold' (ie described in marketing (such as on the website's
download page)) as being the only one available or 'sold'  as anything
other than what it is then those users will say that it's the whole of
LibreOffice that is unstable.

It's not fair but that is the way it is. [shrugs]

Of course most people wont even consider touching an MS product until after
the "Service Pack 1" is released.  It's so well known that there are likely
to be significant problems before that.  Sometimes MS does tricks to try to
get a minor update released quite quickly and call that Sp1 or they say Sp1
is included in the original release but that usually seems to prove wrong.
So some places wont touch an MS product until after Sp2 now.

Many individuals like to risk it and become "early adopters".  Many
"Systems Administrators" and people who write articles for magazines or do
YouTube videos like to get extremely early releases of things so that they
can be ahead of the game and be prepared.

Maybe we could say that x.x.2 is our Sp1 and x.x.4 is Sp2.  It is not quite
the same thing and the models are different but it would give people
something more familiar that they could understand more easily
Regards from
Tom :)
