Most users associate the label "stable" as a synonym for nearly bug-free software. Running without major issues like not able to export data or deleting a question.

LimeSurvey devs under stable as functionality, structures and API hasn't changed with that release.

To allow a broader testing and maturing of LS, different tiers of software releases
Or to remove the label "stable" from the download links.

LTS - Long-Term Support
STABLE - feature-complete and longer public exposure and testing
RELEASE - feature-complete but not fully tested.
BETA - not feature-complete and not fully tested


Allow the installer and comfort-updater to select between this tiers (with blocking, since you cannot switch in every way).

Remind : even some big company like apple have some really big issue … with stable release …
See last face time bug.

Maybe this cannot be an excuse to do better, but develop and testing is less easy as it sounds.
