comment What is another way of saying “final solution?”
Forget solution and call it an "iteration"? Our "most recent iteration" has features X, Y and Z and fixes bugs 1, 2 and 3. Or "version". Nothing in software is ever final unless you're out of business, so the word "final" here seems to be the most problematic.

"John" is commonly used informally in the US. It is not really considered rude, though.
