KDE is developed by hundreds of volunteers, working on their own prefered directions.
There's not, and there could not be a 'management' to drive the development process. KDE could not force a 'stability release' among its developers.
However, 'stability and performance' is the path kde is actually taking. In the past few releases, most of the effort has been put into polishing various parts, not adding new features.
