"and a full 30 days go by without another update (hasn't happened yet for v16)". Unless absolutely nothing happens to 16 which I doubt since 17 fixes will roll down into 16 I don't see 16 going without updates for more than a month for a while. We have been intentionally releasing more often, yes, that has bit us lately do to some slips but we have been thinking about adjusting our release schedule and when we do them (this week we released 16 on Monday). However, we have been very much trying to stick to weekly (or bi-weekly if not much or nothing important) for our updates to 16. Looking at the latest version of software which receives the most work and comparing it to the releases to an older version running a older version of our Frontend (and now with 17 a big piece of the backend) and considering it stable vs the current version is a bad comparison. A lot of fixes we do in 16 can't get rolled into 15 or haven't rolled to 15 because of major changes.
