Code written in Mercury 14.01 should be compatible with the current
ROTDs; the most likely issue you would encounter is that the error
checking in the ROTDs is stronger.  The issue with determinism
declarations that was raised on this list is an example (14.01 was
incorrectly accepting that code).

Yes, we do intend to keep producing stable releases; the lack of such
is simply an issue finding enough resources to go through the process
of creating a stable release.
