KDE routinely has releases that are focused on stabilization and bugfixes. The problem is that when they do that, users complain about the lack of new features. I have seen people complain that KDE does not do enough bug fixing and complain that KDE just had a release without enough new features in the same post.

Perhaps if developers got more positive feedback when they did stabilization-focused releases they might be more inclined to do more, but they seem to get nothing but complaints when they do that.

On top of that, the people who complain loudest about all the bugs in KDE also seem to be the ones who think it is a waste of time reporting bugs on bugzilla.
