Why No Frontpage Announcements On 1.8 Final Release?

I just discovered that 1.8 final has been released. However, neither RSS feed or Renoise.com frontpage knew anything about it. How about informing people of the new version? :)

Just a deliberate delay between actual release and ‘very’ official release, I guess :)
Just in case some stupid critical error or something else was made before the ‘whole world’ got the chance to download it.

yeah, while spamming teh beautifull renoise news on several fora I was called a liar :)
