I understand the sense of frustration about this. But I also understand why they don't want to give any dates at all. Software development seems like it ought to be a straightforward process, but it's not. A complex program is a real ecology, and when the butterfly of text formatting flaps its wings, an unanticipated hurricane can appear in document structuring (so to speak, and to give a random, not-well-informed example). Moving through a checklist of features to add or update is likely to generate sub- and sub-sub-checklists. And then there's a literal storm that causes a days-long power outage; and/or your server service has a meltdown or changes hands.
I speak, not from personal experience as a developer, but from experience as a user of amazing software created by small, dedicated companies who, with a tiny fraction of the resources of Microsoft and Google, are creating programs that run rings around the giants' offerings. Users quite understandably want to know at least what year, for heaven's sake, they're going to see the next update; and developers, quite wisely, know that even that broad of a "deadline" is not really within their control.
