Hi Thorsten, all

Continuing our discussion in public: if branch 3.5 is the stable one, isn't
it correct to assume that PortableApps AND TDF should be coherent with the

If there is only one Recommended version then it should be the current
branch until the new branch reaches x.x.3

That is the version that TDF and PortableApps should have available.

Otherwise it is BAD propaganda to have an Early adopters version (TDF's own
definition) as the showcase for LibreOffice (Portable or not)

However if TDF doesn't follow their own Release Lifecycle (see image in the
linked page), how can you ask that from PortableApps?

This is something that the BoD needs to decide. If the Lifecycle has no
value, then stop wasting time and resources on maintaining the previous
branch. If it makes sense then don't recommend the new branch until it
reaches x.x.3

The download page just needs to reflect this decision. 

All other versions are in different states of Development. These should be
available on a *separate* page for people who don't mind having unstable
versions but want the latest features (of course whining is not acceptable
from such users but bug reporting his highly valued)

And to be coherent with this only the recommended version should be
announced.  Announcing versions from both branches
( just generates confusion.

Just my 2 cents
