Will the 1,5,0 release be made with all the variations for Linux,
Windows and Mac available?

Will we have more months of trying to convince newcomers that this
"unstable" release is really a production release? Heck I am using it
now with no problems. I remember the months (years?) that new users
struggled with problems on 1.3.3.x and found out that no developers were
working on that version any more and almost all users had moved
on also.
