I'm not happy with the outcome either, but as a developer I can really
see how bringing forward the old ui (which would need changes even if
you do not add features there) and the new one at the same time would
be impractical and/or plain impossible to do.

However, I think anaconda developers knew that 6 months were too short
since the beginning. If this was abundantly clear to FESCo and other
interested parties, I think we could even accept a one time 9/12
months release cycle instead, without raising all this fuss for each
week of delay.
