Better Addressing Your Feedback
We've taken some time to reflect on how to best address feedback as well as schedule addressing them for future releases, and have decided the best way to continue providing a high-quality experience is to utilize milestones less often. You'll notice open feedback items have been moved to the Project board. This change is beneficial for users because it provides more transparency about WHEN a bug/feature is being worked on (rather than an arbitrary version number), so we hope to expand and improve this based on your feedback. @yaichenbaum has been very helpful in pioneering this approach including the now-functional pipelines.

Peer-review By Default
We've also shifted our work to better encourage peer-review (by default). This means we now open PR's just like you do. Feedback in these open items is always welcomed!

Considering we're in the middle of a global pandemic, it is very wonderful to see the amount of enthusiasm and new contributors gained this cycle. Keep up the great work, and stay safe everyone!
