It *is* in my opinion. As it becomes happening regularly.
As we always say: latest version before stable release,
we are confusing the users. I definitly dislike this.

Well, there is much pressure to get out the stable. Even
beta11 was taking too long (you reminded me here :-). So
if again having a twofold test-phase, it takes March to get
out beta12. Currently there is much waste of time in this.
Sorry, probably I am too overworked... but this is all a bit
odd as we regularly break promises.
