I guess it's a matter of interpretation.  The word stable can mean
different things.  In this context, it is the opposite of labile and
specifically in comparison with the continually changing git version.

Stable does not unfortunately mean "bug-free" nor does it mean anything
with respect to the previous "stable" version.
