I think the release of a simple core version before all planned features 
are implemented is a good idea, because:

1) It has a fruitful and inspiring precedent in the current EpiData 
Analysis which allowed with an early release a large user base to test, 
provide input, and revision for subsequent enhancements
2) Not to release until all possible features are implemented would mean 
to restrict testing to a very small user base and thus perhaps missing 
key problems in the core functionality
3) Relatively early release will demonstrate to a wider public the 
progress being made and allow establishing through user-feedback the 
core functionality
4) Early release will, in addition to already planned enhancements, 
enable input coordination for future development
