I don't know how stable any release is. It often is stable. But
there were _lots_ of checkins in the last week. By definition these
don't have more than a few days testing by a larger audience, no matter
how well tested they were before that. Nothing beats testing by a larger
and larger audience in making a confident statement about stability.

All releases have their bugs, of course, usually and hopefully
minor but a number of the bugs of recent recollection were detectable
without any debugging traces, they where behavioural bugs, not crashes.
