I don't think anyone really minds if new versions are released often, but the issue of add-ons breaking because of the chosen versioning scheme is probably the largest annoyance. You can still release often without changing the major version number, at least until you can convince add-on developers to use the new SDK.

FBI and NYPD Officers Sent On Museum Field Trip 70

Posted by samzenpus

In an attempt to "refresh their sense of inquiry" FBI agents, and NYPD officers are being sent to a course at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Art of Perception hopes to improve an officers' ability to accurately describe what they see during an investigation by studying art. From the article: "Amy Herman, the course leader, said: 'We're getting them off the streets and out of the precincts, and it refreshes their sense of inquiry. They're thinking, "Oh, how am I doing my job," and it forces them to think about how they communicate, and how they see the world around them.' Ms Herman, an art historian, originally developed the course for medical students, but successfully pitched it as a training course to the New York Police Academy."

Documentation is the castor oil of programming. Managers know it must be good because the programmers hate it so much.
