A Bug Fix Release please

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic: My vote for a V9.3 bug fix release ONLY

In my former life with IBM, periodically we would deliver a "bug fix" release with no enhancements. I can tell you that our customers appreciated it. Judging by the large number of reported bugs in the 9.n releases, appearing (from this forum) to increase with each release, I think it is time for Lightroom to do the same. Lightroom needs to be stabilized before moving on to 10. 
I'm referring to true defects and not performance issues.

Especially as this version is so buggy, it sometimes has trouble even keeping synced up with my mouse pointer on the screen while it is doing background stuff that I end up pressing the wrong button or not realizing something has been selected and end up pressing something more than once.  It is becoming unusable whatsoever at times now in just the past week or so.

A couple "bug fix" releases would be great.  Unfortunately, the bean counters don't seem to like that idea.

They're going to have fewer beans to count if they don't put out a stable version. The competition has already been chomping at the heels of Adobe.

In reported 4 of them today on MacOS. Plus the whole Legacy Compositing fiasco.

Four? I see:
Can't tell which is first file selected in ACR PS CC 2020 21.2

Nor did I see there the OS but do above which is helpful. 

I'm having no issues seeing which image in the filmstrip is selected, perhaps your display needs to be calibrated, replaced? 

Does the white outlined below from MY display appear 'marginally visible"? 
This isn't a bug. Nor is the NEW behavior for setting labels that was explained to you:

Camera Raw (PS CC 2020 21.2) Update - Cannot set Label


Most Selected and secondary selection.

Where are the other three 'bugs'? I'd like to see them and if necessary, I CAN provide bug reports directly to the Adobe team.

Sadly I can't see this happening ... cannot think of a single previous version of LrC that hasn't been  replaced by a new major version (adding lots of new bugs) before its bugs had been fixed.

Which specific bugs make you think that a bug fix is necessary? It's very easy to cry wolf with vague "so buggy" claims (not your words) but I really don't see any bugs that are so widespread and so detrimental that I'd expect or want Adobe to go along with your idea.
