There have been releases in the past that address only security vulnerabilities or major faults (and not bugfixes or translation updates), such as 4.0.16, 4.0.15, and 4.0.13.

My inclination is that security releases should be as tiny as possible to help remove any reasons for people to avoid upgrading. Furthermore, we don’t want to have people wait on a release candidate to pass muster in order to be able to upgrade to a secure version of RT. Finally it’s also important to be able to roll these releases out quickly, having the most limited set of sources for regressions possible.

I know you’re asking because you care about translation updates and bugfixes (many of which you’ve contributed!), and we’re definitely going to be shipping another bugfix release once the dust settles on 4.2.12. :)
