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.

I should have stated originally that I am not trying to force anything here. I totally understand that the developers on this project may be most comfortable with the approach of "we'll release it when it's ready, not a moment before". Rather, I was curious if the team had a planned roadmap they were currently targeting, and where one could easily track that information. It sounds like nothing of that sort really exists. This is not ideal but hardly something to stress about.

What does have impact for me is whether the next release is still many months out or longer. Knowing a little bit about the schedule, I can more easily justify the time expense of getting a build environment set up to be able to run from master or some other staging branch. I have no qualms of running "bleeding-edge" bits. That said, it is always more convenient to be able to work from pre-built binaries, although those understandably take time to create and publish.

So, I apologize if I have ruffled any feathers here.
