This is a bit of a bummer. That's a long time between major releases.
Personally I'm not enthused when I see spiffy features added to -current
right after a major release. Since I don't run -current, it means I
won't be able to use the new features for perhaps a couple of years. 

I'd appreciate it if major releases were closer to a year apart than
two years apart.
