Iam not sure what you mean by "I vote the release ..."
please clarify

But i do not think that delaying the release further is what most
developers want. In case thats what you suggest.
The release is already several months behind shedule

Releases should be done "early and often", waiting for "in development"
features will delay a release forever, theres always another feature
on the horizon that someone wants in.

Of course if the majority wants me to wait with the release, its easy
to wait for as long as people want me to wait ...
