bioperl-live really means the HEAD of the cvs repository so is the most
bleeding-edge code available.

Version 1.5.* is the developer release, while the 1.4.* is the stable
release. However, there have been few updates to the 1.4.* release which
means that it is more unstable than the 1.5.* dev release. I think the
consensus, was to have more rapid release cycles of the stable branch in
future in order to avoid this. I'm sure there are others more qualified
to expand/correct me on this if needs e.
