I don't see the point in this. They didn't change the feature list or ship date, so what purpose does calling it 1.5 serve?

I don't think there is even enough changes to warrant calling it 1.5. But oh well, it's just a version number.

They don't think the name 1.1 would reflect the number of fixes and new features. They are doing a fair bit, maybe not a lot visible and lot is being done under the hood.

well, they need to catch up with IE, after all, which is going to be at version 7 soon.
