Right now we are averaging 23 new topics and 120+ answers a day.
WordPress has a good support reputation - a new release at a time of
reduced support would not put this release in a good light would it ?
And would it really hurt to delay it ? Really ? For the sake of a few days ?

Matt - if you don't release it, you will get frustrated but everyone
else will understand. If you do release it, you'll be happy because of
what you said about today / tomorrow  but there will be frustration
among many.

Your choice though anyway.
