In fact several of the major ones are still not ready, so I think that
experience is evidence that we couldn't handle a six-month release cycle
anyway.  We'll still stick to the announced 8.3 schedule though, since
part of the reason for it was to rotate around to a spring release time
instead of a fall release time, on the thought that that might work more
conveniently for many people.
