My point wasn't so much about announcing the 10.2 release as such but its pricing and update path. For example, although I'm very glad these quite substantial point releases are happening, when I purchased MMA Home Edition (10.0.1, I believe), I did not know this change to a system of point releases was happening, nor that I would need to pay for them, nor what the updates would cost. AFAIK, this information was not publicized anywhere at that time. Then, when 10.1 was released, I don't recall (I may be wrong) receiving an email or seeing a blog post or a support article about the new pricing model either.
Now that we've gone from 10.1 to 10.2 another issue comes into play. Since there were no dot releases between 10.1 and 10.2, if you don't purchase an annual plan, does this mean that you effectively don't get any bug fixes either? Or will these continue to be handled via paclets? Or just for some bugs? Well, perhaps there will be a 10.2.1 or 10.3.1 as well, but who knows?
I also don't know how many more 10.x releases to expect (even roughly). Will I be paying for three more, four more? Each one will cost 95 dollars (I can only assume). And if I skip one, do I then pay $190 to go from from e.g. 10.2 to 10.4? Or, if 10.x releases are really free for Home Edition users who have purchased an upgrade in the last 30 days, perhaps I should wait and only upgrade just before every second update. Save myself half the price. This, surely, is not intended, so I wonder if the 30 day offer will really hold.
These are the kinds of questions which should really be answered in an FAQ somewhere but AFAIK are not.
