Yes, that seems to be more a side-effect of the ease of creating a release on
git rather than the historical deliberative process of what to include, patch
and the normal Q&A that takes place during the 'alpha', 'beta' stages before
we reach a 'release'.

The changelog seems to reflect that Arch is NOT following the stable branch of

The latest release on the "Master" branch is:

Release build (7.0.8-27) (released 24 days ago)

Why are we not tracking Master?
