Date for the next update? I don’t know, can’t tell.

Much as I (we) understand the need for getting the bug fix to you as early as possible, the fact is that I am a humble messenger passing on the information about your problem to the product team, and getting an answer back for you. And I will not always have an answer for you. Here’s why.

In an ideal world, the bug fix would sneak your way into your software the next time you opened it and an equally sneaky message would inform you about the transgression.

In the world as it exists today, things don’t just work that way. Product teams usually have to co-ordinate a lot of things and make sure things are perfect before they announce a release date. And things could go terribly wrong at the last minute prompting a change of plans.

This is the reason why the product management team is the only team that has to make that call and announcement. People like me can broadcast it only after that is done. Think of it like a nuclear deal signed by the head of your country. The journalists probably have a clue about the details but they are not authorized to reveal it until the deal is done.
