I like this part because to me it feels like those RCs nowadays are often
not necessary to do from development perspective but still "have to" because
itâ??s just such a release process. On the other hand, RCs are useful when the project
is really being actively developed (new features, refactoring etc) because it helps
to get something pretending to be the final release but thereâ??s still a chance to
update it if testing helped find some issues.
For what itâ??s worth, I think having less versions is better, especially if all artificial
(procedural if you will) ones are gone. Less confusing for users and new
contributors. Such confusions really happen once in a while in practice.
