The minor dot releases to Firefox were purely security fixes that as far
as I'm concerned are necessary, there are no new features in these minor
releases. The changing of the name of the next FF release to 1.1 -> 1.5
is purely due to the fact they have taken more features than was
originally planned (Whether or not this is a good idea remains to be
seen), it is exactly the same as Wordpress 1.3 actually being released
As far as I'm concerned a minor feature release of 1.5.2 is a good thing
especially if a full security audit is performed with it.
