In my opinion, frequent slow releases are way better than rare fast releases.

That may be true for some software, but libtool has a really good test suite so if tests pass, there is high confidence of quality for the systems it has been executed on. It is abnoxiously painful to build libtool starting from git sources so hardly anyone is testing the unreleased code.

Pushing out a release assures that the mechanics are working and that it is even possible to create a release.

Users are much more apt to report bugs and patches against software that they can easily use.
