I totally agree in that we shouldn't need to release that often. 
However, the HBCI transfer issue that got fixed last week in fact is a 
somewhat urgent bugfix. Not a problem with data corruption but with 
corruption of your account's money... I would appreciate if we could 
bring out a release in not too far future -- for example, next weekend 
(Match 2nd). This of course was an unforeseen problem.

For a schedule of further releases a time interval of 4-6 weeks is 
certainly more appropriate. As for translations -- there has only been 
some work on the Italian translations, nothing more so far. So in terms 
of the translators there is no urgent need for quick releases.
