The last devlog killed all the expectation I had for a release in the next weeks.

How? Was your expectation of debug time somehow different than the one the devlog put forward?

If you ask me, we'll end up with DF2014 by the first week of may, or, if we're really lucky, the end of April.

You do realize we're talking issues, right? Crashes, gamebreaking bugs and stuff?

We'll be lucky if it gets done this summer...

I was expecting something positive like "Well guys, there only some bugs left. I will do some cleaning and make a release soon. It will be fun, he he he"

And then the release drops and everyone's all excited and tries it out, has some fun, waits until the round of bug fixing and low hanging fruit is done over the next few months, then gets bored and starts hyping themselves up for the next major release 2-3 years away... -.-

Content updates to note are 0.34.08, 0.34.06, 0.31.19, 0.31.17 and 0.31.13. Look at the time those took.

While at it, Pi Is Exactly 3.

It will be when magic gets implemented and wizards can alter universal and mathematical constants.

regardless, the slime shooter will be completed, come hell or high water, which are both entirely plausible setbacks at this point.

So?
I seen you already tried to "prove" that major releases do not take that long. Reality says otherwise. In fact, I would be not surprised if next major release would beat current record. For certain it will not be short.

And then everyone will die horribly (or not horribly, some of these are so fast you will not feel anything) as soon as first magic user uses his powers.

It's true that major releases take a long time (this release has already set a new record, taking longer than 0.31) - Putnam was saying that the bugfixing period before a major release (which we're currently in) has never taken over a month.

There was a typo in the siegers' campfire code. When the fires went out, so did the game.

I'm still saying early to mid June just because. My guts tell me that this version has bugs that will require that much and also the optimization part that is no small when you consider the dynamic and live world we are getting. Of course I hope it gets done earlier but whatever time it takes it's fine.

I'm curious as to how a tank would evolve. Would it climb out of the primordial ooze wiggling it's track-nubs, feeding on smaller jeeps before crawling onto the shore having evolved proper treds?
My ship exploded midflight, but all the shrapnel totally landed on Alpha Centauri before anyone else did.  Bow before me world leaders!

At this point Toady could literally release it at any time.
Whether that would be a good idea is up to him, of course.

That's a comforting thought.
