Agree. The 2017 version was never actually a finished product IMO and certainly did not live up to the hype that was originally published about how it was going to be a LR 'killer'.
I personally think it should be a free upgrade for anyone who paid for it and unwittingly became a beta tester for a product that was not ready on the published release date.
I wonder what the chances of suing for breach of implied contract would have for the failure to incorporate the missing promised features would have. Especially if it were to be possible to threaten it as a class action suite. I would think that on it's own might be enough bad publicity to prompt them to do the right thing by customers and give all 2017 owners a free upgrade, at least until they have hit all the promised features they were touting at launch.
After all if you say to people buy our product because it has/will have X,Y, and Z, they have a right to expect that you will deliver X, Y, and Z in the product. A 12 month major release product cycle for commercial software seems really short to me, even Adobe gave us quite a bit longer than that in general between releases, back before CC took over.
