The policy is to release when ready. The problem is the lack of$
maintainer's time. Major new features (groups, layouts, -Q flag) are
great, but$ they don't play particularly well with some older ones.
It is way to$ easy to crash Screen.

   1. go into search mode with either a slash or question mark (after
C-a ESC)
   2. press capital 'N' to indicate that you are doing a multi-screen
search (rather than lower case 'n' for a single screen)

When the current screen is then searched for that string, if it cannot
be found it cycles to the previous screen in the case of a '?' to look
for that string. In the case of a '/' it goes to the next string. When
it finds the string, that screen - and the context behind it - then is
brought up in focus.

It could certainly be done with an external script, using features
from 4.1.0. For example, pipe the output of to a
script, which queries Screen for the current window number and provides
a customised interface for searching.
