The resources of our main developers are spread thin enough as it is
so there is little interest in doing the work necessary for releasing.
There is no problem with doing more frequent releases if someone beyond
the usual people (who are too busy with job etc.) does the work, that
includes creating a release tarball, testing on a few architectures,
writing a news entry, building Windows and MacOSX binaries (without
custom patches like many inofficial packages) etc.
Otherwise look at e.g. gentoo, they are doing MPlayer "releases" all the
time without any extra effort from our side (the latest being based on
SVN r26300).
