With all due respect, the latest 'official' release is v0.11.8, more
than three years old and rather outdated. Many new devices have been
added since.

Fedora Core contains a lot of alpha, beta or otherwise experimental
software. So I think it's at least understandable they prefer an
up-to-date, good-looking prerelease over an outdated stable release.

Your point of view is also understandable.
