Wolfram runs a software business.  This generally
entails periodic new releases, generally with new
bugs, in order to encourage sales. The fact that
it does symbolic mathematics doesn't matter so much.
After all, the company employs marketing, sales,
accountants, legal staff, random programmers
for web stuff, graphics designers,etc. and a
few "subject matter experts".

If you don't like what a program does, you should
consider not buying the program.
