I don't get those weird version numbers. Why 5.04 and 6.04 instead of 5.0 and 6.0?

6.04 means it will be released April 2006. Check FAQ.

So why isn't this "preview release" named (K)Ubuntu 5.11? It isn't yet April 2006. Check calendar.

Because 5.04 and 6.04 not like bring order into the release numbers but also show clearly in which month and year the release was.
