well, it depends on what you mean by 'release'. plug-in release or package release?

plug-in releases generally happen when important issues are fixed, or new features are added, and do not have a cadence.

package releases will (hopefully) follow the Eclipse cadence.

due to the manual way to update the epp packages, this becomes very difficult, since, in order to do it only once, I need the final cpp packages. 

if I do it now, I'll either miss all future changes that might occur to cpp, or have to redo the whole thing again and again. not a joy.

ah, I know the semantics of the version numbers, but how can I tell if the changes are breaking compatibility, if they are enhancements or bug fixes?

unless the Eclipse Foundation has a crystal ball to tell the future, I personally have no idea what changes will come with the next release.
