Yes, it's there:

Code: Select all

after 8 weeks we are still receiving complaints about frequently reported bugs such as the hole on the E4 in Stockholm
People didn't download the hotfix and were still reporting issues that we fixed for them with that hotfix...

We wanted to save your time, because hotfixes are small and full releases are much, much bigger but that didn't work well... And we weren't able to fix that giant flag pole with a hotfix anyway.

@Voytek.. hotfix also means regularity.. no only small size :) so.. there is better then release patched version, than make new holes with one hotfix for 2-3 months :)
