You're picking nits a bit.
.20.2 is a point release, not a full release, and its main change was
to use schedulesdirect. As a non-US user I DID upgrade, but there
were no changes that really affected me (not counting bugfixes).
.20.1 was in april 2007, and it also was mainly a release for HDHR
users. With a better architecture (not a criticism, just a comment!)
it would have been a "module" upgrade, not a release.
So while the current release version of myth is awesome, and
appreciated by all users, it HAS been a long time since a full
release. From following this list I understand why this is the case,
but it's really been almost a year and a half since a non-bugfix
non-emergency (SD) release.
Unreleased .21 (svn) has a TON of new ideas and changes, and thus is
taking a long time to come out. A big problem myth has right now is
the "dual attitude" of it.
If you want stability, run current release. That is the "official"
version. SVN is for testers, not for daily use.
SVN is the "current" version. It runs great for me. Just don't be
suprised if it OCCASIONALLY breaks.
Both of these attitudes are displayed on the -users list by devs and
"helpers," which confuses a lot of people.
