There are at least three major releases of WordPress per year where users can expect new features and major bug fixes about every four months. While this is great for users, some companies, plugin, and theme developers are struggling to keep up.
According to the article, WordPress development is going to move even faster in the future. I don’t have a problem with that, but it seems that many others do. I wonder if Automattic or the WordPress Core Team have toyed with the idea of having a Long Term Support (LTS) version of WordPress? It works well for Canonical and Ubuntu. Now, try to imagine a perfect world where the WordPress and Ubuntu LTS versions had the same release dates and the same life spans.
