If there are no stable releases, then maybe the web site should not
say: "Stable version 8.3.1 (Aug. 2015)." Perhaps "stable" should just
be eliminated from that phrase. Certainly, the use of "stable"
confused me.

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.

I never expect any version to be bug free.
