How is 8.1.1 a maintenance release with all the new features???

Recommended Posts

Exactly as the title says, I see that 8.1.1 has been released and I normally am quick to implement a maintenace release in order to ensure that all bugs and patches are implemented and relevant.

Don't get me wrong, I love it when new features come along but according to Wikipedia, a maintenance release is a release of a product that does not add new features or content. See: Maintenance Release

However, upon looking at the release notes for 8.1.1, I see the following new features are being implemented:

  • New Twenty-One Client Area Theme
  • Updated Templating System
  • OAuth2 for Email Importing
  • Automated User Deletion
  • Disable Outgoing Mail

Now I am aware that along with this release, there are a number of fixes as well but should the above be included in 8.2 perhaps?

Just wondering here as some of the above new features seem to be pretty big features such as a whole new templating system and an entirely new theme.

Your thoughts?  Am I completely off the mark?
