I wasn't trying to imply that there was
anything wrong with lagging behind a little.
I happen to have my service contract
for FW1 with Sun.
I might like to see new versions released
a bit quicker, but I understand the reasons
for the delay.

The delays are not usually that long. The issue here is that we want to make
sure that we don't put on a patch which installs properly, fixes the problems
it is supposed to fix, and doesn't introduces new bugs in it.
If we didn't take those steps, we wouldn't be serving our customers properly.
