We can open a branch and get back to work immediately.

I tend to agree with you, but that doesn't change my opinion.
1) 3.1 is in any case better than 3.0.x
2) 3.0.x wasn't polished too and we didn't know about that before the release
3) 3.1 fixes two grave crashes (one bdb related, applies to all modern
Linuxes and second - rife doctreeview repaint crash).

Analyzing those points I think we _must_ release now and bring stable KDevelop
to the production. We can polish it later, but the stability is the key.
Again, Linux distributions pending for Auttumn should have such KDevelop
release. 3.0.x with it's bugs harms us more than unpolished 3.1.
