I know that you don’t like that sort of questions because “Das Gras wächst nicht schneller, wenn man daran zieht.”*

But an increasing number of questions asked in forums or on the lists can be answered by “compile current master or wait for 2.21.0”. And a huge number of answers requires at least 2.19.xx but people understandably don’t want to install an “unstable” version.

Since the first prerelease seven months have passed, people wonder whether 2.20.0 will happen in a few weeks, a few months or even longer in the future.

Don’t get me wrong: We can be very happy to have such a committed project leader. But maybe also the other developers should join forces to

1. find out what blocks the release of 2.20.0
2. concentrate on that instead of new features.

Personally, I don’t know about 1. That’s why I added new features instead. At the moment I don’t have the time to that too but I would be happy if I could help to bring 2.20.0 out.
