Description

@Jaroslav: Inspired by a question on the forum, I've just looked at the roadmap for 4.4 release. It currently stands at 44%.
Now, 4.2.0 was released about two years ago. Not sure this is feasible / wanted, but given that 4.3 already contains a number of significant and valueable improvements, I was wondering whether you could split the 4.4. roadmap into an earlier "interim" 4.4. release and move the rest to 4.6. instead. Would you consider this?

I'd be much interested in having more details on when to expect a 4.4 release considering all improvements already in.
I'm trying to get 4.3-snapshots released over to synocommunity:

I think we could call the current master 4.3, consider it stable, fork current master and name it 4.4 (so the master is the work that is done in preparation for 4.4) and consider 4.2 deprecated. I'm not aware of any huge bugs that make current master any worse than 4.2, so it's an improvement even though it might contain bugs.

However, all this takes time from someone who has the necessary rights to do this in the repo and on the build system, so that might be one of the reasons this is not done yet.

I hope that I find some time in next weeks to release 4.4. Sorry, I was busy with tons of other things this year.

At least you have not abandoned the project for it. Of which I am very happy <3

So current master will be copied and called 4.4, it will replace 4.2 as stable build? Then we start working on 4.5 which will be the new master then? So 4.3 was a "development only" version?
