I agree Martin,
but I would hope that (at least) some of the major bugs reported for
1.7/1.7.1 will be solved before a new release.
The risk is to provide new features, but loosing stability for the ones
users are used to.

> This is an incomplete list of main new features in master branch since 1.7:
> - globe plugin
> - road graph plugin
> - zonal stats plugin
> - browser (dock widget + standalone app)
> - customization
> - lots of server updates
> - symbology: ellipses with data-defined fields, line patterns, point
> - 64-bit feature ids
> - expressions instead of search strings
> - generic import layer
> - plenty of bugfixes and small improvements
> If there is a consensus I guess the release could happen soon,
> sometime in mid-November.
