You are only speculating of possible bugs that could appear with these
new features, but we are talking about 151 *confirmed* bugs, from
which 44 are crashes that also for sure, will make someone loose their
work and make him angry at us. Also those 6 new features seem minor
and more of a cosmetic nature for most of them, I don't think they can
introduce any serious bug like a crash.

Even so backports were open I think that because of the huge amount of
bug fixes this version should be push as an update instead of a

Of course no one expects to loose work, but in your same line of
thought, actual users of our version of kdenlive also don't expect to
loose their work because of a crash if there's a fix available and we
aren't providing it.
