It's true that in the past we weren't very rigorous with focusing strictly
on stability. This is because ownCloud started out as an open source
project and quickly grew with lots of volunteers having different ambitions
and opinions.
Now through the company people are invested in it full-time, hear the bugs
users report and need to fix them - instead of people just working on "cool
new stuff" in their free time without really worrying how it will affect
actual users. Quality is going up from here, but of course it will not
happen with the snap of a finger.
