I am fairly new to WordPress (2 years now) and I really, really love it a lot. It´s great spending time with, twiddling around and being a sometimes helpful, sometimes not too helpful part of the forum... ;-)
However, in the time since 3.4.3 or so I am struggling to keep my site functional in terms of changes you do to the code causing plugins to go tits up and all that. I know plugin authors must update but the majority of them do take a lot of time to do that which is fine, they do it as a hobby.
So... my request is. Can we take WordPress 3.6 (or 5 or 7 or whatever) and freeze it as a stable release that will only get security updates for two years of time until the next "frozen" version will be selected?
I think many people would actually make use of this and more sites would remain safe as many people are actually afraid up updating now because there have been so many troubles with 3.5 and 3.6 (much less with 3.6 though...).
Well, maybe someone likes the idea and it´s gonna be realized.
Thanks for your attention!
