WordPress Update Cycle

ONE common complaint about WordPress is that it requires frequent updates. But the matter of fact is, very few of these updates nowadays are security-related, so provided one does not ride along with the treadmill, it should be possible to check the release details and see if an update is crucial for security. For over half a year (until recently) WordPress had no security updates. There were not known flaws. So for those who maintain many WordPress blogs (I run about 10) or have to manually upgrade some of them due to hosting setup, an update to WordPress should only be required once in a very long time. Nobody forces an update and provided one is comfortable lagging behind on the features, WordPress should not be marked down on the basis of release pace.
