This doesn't matter; we still claim that bioperl 1.4 is the latest
stable release. People will continue to chose to install the release
that is claimed as being stable.
1.5.2 is a developer point release to try out experimental new features.
It may contain many bug fixes, but because it also contains new things
it can't be used in a production environment. 1.4 can; most of its
problems are that some things no longer work because file formats etc.
have changed since its release, but what /does/ work is at least known
1.6 will be tested and polished into the ground, and we can recommend
everyone install that. 1.5.2, not so much. It contains known bugs.
