Those people don't even know what a release is, they just download what's there.
Whenever I check out a project, I just look on the front page to see
if there's any activity (news, releases, blogs, doesn't matter), and I
think most people do that. I don't care if the release is a year old
if there's activity.

A synchronized release is releasing related software together in a
*coordinated* way (usually coordinated by the encompassing/base
project's release team). This is not the same as releasing a project
every six months because another project also releases every six
months. We are not part of any project, and we certainly don't have
the bandwidth to commit to another project to release at a given date.
At best, we could release QCA together with Psi.
