I beg to differ here. This kind of attitude "we know better than our users" never helped anybody, mainly because you DON'T: you have no idea how we, the users, use your software - unless you listen to us. Open source has actually MUCH more to learn on this aspect, way more than commercial software which is by definition driven by customer acceptance.
The question about release timing was already discussed: it's arbitrary. No corporate contracts are forcing anybody to stick with a certain date. The issue and its fix are also not new (at all), so nobody can say it was just raised one month before the release date. That now is too late I can understand, however it was not always late.
My question is: what are the priorities for the project, who sets them and how? Collab.net would probably listen to (potential candidates for) support contracts - probably corporate users with huge repositories. The community could use a JIRA-like voting system for the existing issues - then one would really see if users find logging support more important than working copy performance. The developers, well, I'm sure they had some real reason to reject that so early, I just don't know it.
I'm glad it will come at least with 1.7, I hope there won't come somebody to say "heck with the speedup, let's build in some more whistles" :)
By the way, is there somebody having a support contract around here? Are you interested in better Windows performance?
