They're just naming it 1.5 so that people will upgrade.

I'm inclining to agree. This seems much more like an upgrade push instead of a true reason to jump from 1.0 to 1.5. Goes to show that open-source groups are just like normal commercial companies ;) .

That being said, in the end it doesn't matter. Firefox is a decent browser, and the version number scheme is gonna change fcuk all about that.

Now it's going to be nearly 12 months before a new release (assuming they hit their new date).

It's planned for September *this* year.

Yeah, but September of this year is nearly a year from the 1.0 release date. Oh, I meant a year from the original release, not from now. Oops.
