I don't see how infrequent, stable releases are more likely to

"stability" is something that cannot be achieved in living language.
and having official releases with new features is important to show
that project is alive and "mature".

i myself using dmd-git-head and heavily ;-) patched gdc, but when i
tried to convince my co-workers to use D, they looked at the page with
releases first. not feature list or some comparisons. neither to
"buglist". "as this is relatively young language, it must have frequent
releases with bugfixes and new features!" they tolerate some
regressions in some releases, but they want to see that releases.

don't ask me why they thinking like this. i don't know. but it's the
fact.


Well, people will invent *any* excuse to pass over anything they don't feel like bothering with. It sounds like that's probably what they were doing.
