There's also apparently a difference between the minor revisions - those are maintenance releases and aren't exactly "development". I guess "development" would mean 5.9 and 5.10 while the .1 is just maintenance. I guess that implies differences in what sort of changes are allowed for each - the development track would presumably allow a lot more flexibility in what changes.

    No. Odd numbers are development releases, and evens are offcial releases, and the minor are maintenance releases..

      Which gets evern more confusing when the tarball name is 5.8.1-RC2, but internal to the makefile(s?) it is called 5.9.0?
