ve3jlg Do releases contain both new features and defect fixes, or just defect fixes?
In my experience, it's a mix and just depends on what the development team has have been working on.
ve3jlg is there a way to get only more secure defect-fix-only releases like Linux LTS releases
This isn't currently possible, and I don't know that it ever would be. Aside from the recent dark mode option in the Messaging app, the vast majority of new features that I've seen have been security and/or privacy related. I imagine that at least some of these features would help shape the core security enhancements of OS, making their omission unsupportable. For example, I understand that scoped contacts are in the works, allowing you to pick and choose which contacts are available to apps.
