It's time to fix bugs.
Don't ask me when I'll release a ROM. I have no timetable.

So the 5th release should fix more issues or has some improvements. On the other hand, when a Kitkat 4.4 ROM is released, it will be the 1st release which I expect that there will be some issues which is totally understandable. If you look at the changelog of the JB 4.2.2 ROM, you will see that the 1st release has several issues as well.
Since I can only speak for myself, the fact that there are a number of 4.3.x releases does not mean that any of them are ready for primetime, especially the almost working
(duh...) release of 4.4.
The number of releases listed in a change log, does not indicate a ROM's value or stability, as there is no reason to perceive those as any more stable than a ROM's first release (author-dependent, of course), let alone waste the time to pursue it, when a subsequent version has been released.
I would much rather have alpha Tytung versions of 4.4.x than a "stable"/multi-version release by anyone else in the HD2 world.
Tytung just received his Nexus 5, which comes with 4.4. There is no reason for him to do anything but little fixes, if he so chooses, for the HD2.
Of course, if tytung needs a diversion after working on his Nexus 5, only then can we hope for a version update, and it would make little sense to offer the HD2 a version update to anything other than what is current and/or possible for the HD2.
Any ROM that is released must be deemed alpha, which is what is to be expected in development forums. As we all know, we flash at our own risk, so if that were a concern, I would wait until the new ROM's change log lengthens.
