Users will be upgrading to a snapshot we're familiar with, and the update manager will not only list updates but inform users about particular problems for this snapshot and maybe even solve some of them automatically. From a communication point of view, it will also ease the process, as you won't be referring to a particular date (as you did in this thread) but to a snapshot number.

They had an initial release several months ago and release what they call respins at intervals whenever there have been enough updates to justify a new version of the .iso file.
It is apparently working well for them. They keep the number of updates needed after an installation to a manageable number and new users get the latest versions of all installed software
