Thought I'd just drop my 2 cents about this in the hopes that SameerH or anyone from Kobo might read it.
If Kobo released versions quicker we wouldn't need to sideload. As it stands, in South Africa you still can't get 2.4 through official channels, never mind 2.4b. We probably won't see 2.5 until 2 versions after it's been released.
I understand the need to stagger releases but if some users are still not getting them 2 months later then you need to evaluate it.
And after all that I really doubt they'll ever read this or care.
