I dont think I will really "release" any version with the old code as it is hard
to maintain and is in many ways complicated.
But on the other hand I want to keep on to support the old users as good as
possible. I already started a rewrite of the GUI but this will take some time.
So I split my time between support for the old code and to rewrite the GUI.

But the build environment and packaging will be needed in both development
pathes.

For handling of bugs I think it would be best to use the github issue tracker.
This would help to establish something near to release managment.
