My company releases software after each iteration. The result is a
constantly changing platform. I suspect this is really bad for the
user experience. Anyone have usage data, case studies, etc on this

This question is a little outside the scope of IxD but is closely
related to one of our goals: getting our work in front of real people.
What I'm interested to know is - in the web world, how do your
companies approach new releases?
How much time is spent on QA, and how often do you release improved
versions of your product - be it fixes, or new features?
What's your release criteria?
I know this tends to be different for different types of companies...
but would love to hear what works for you.
Have any of you ever succeeded in getting a software release dedicated solely to usability fixes? I guess I'm primarily addressing in-house specialists... presumably consultants are often engaged to address solely usability.
