[Catalyst] Release early, release often?

Put me in the "early and often" column.  *As long as*:

	- there's an extensive automated test suite 
	- all the tests are passing
	- there are no half implemented features (or, if there are, they
are clearly identified)

Subject: [Catalyst] Release early, release often?

Ever now and then, the same old discussion comes up on irc.

Should we release early and often or only when it's "rock solid".
Both have pros'n cons.

The first opens development to the community, resulting in more patches 
and influence for users,
second seems to boost confidence in the project.

This is not just a Cat question but more a general one.

What do you guys think?
