I also would prefer to release on thursday or friday due to my wanting 
to go away next weekend. To me pushing out the stable release is 
preferable too as there is a lot more work creating announcements. I 
dont like the idea of doing announcements mid-week as this is quite 
difficult to me due to my work schedule. I would far prefer to create 
the stable release tarball on the thursday before the sunday release to 
give Nathan time to roll the Windows version.
