While the 4.1 and 4.2 releases need to come out quickly to fix the early 
porting issues, the case is less so for 4.3. I would instead recommend 
that the release schedule for 4.3 be increased: from 6 months to 8 or 9. 
That would place Akademy 5 months after 4.2 and 3 or 4 months before the 
4.3.0 release.

Also note that Qt has a 8-10 month release schedule.
