I can't say, either, without looking at the changelog. But does it matter? If a 
particular feature is of interest, can't the changelog suffice?

I agree that no long-term patch support is a problem. But it's mainly the result 
of our team being small, not having a different release scheme. There's nothing 
really preventing a regression fix from going back into any particular release 
except someone actually doing it.

Needing patch support for various versions could be an ideal thing that 
companies that need it can supply funding for.
