@ Nicholas,

If you find it odd, you might want to wait using vtigercrm as we're  
in the process of becoming mature.

@ Callum,

What you are refering to is not release naming to my idea.
But package naming.
I think that's a bit confusing for more people,
The release naming is still the same, in you example 5.0.2,
depending on the target platform is you're suggested packet naming.

I can agree with it, yet as our user are no newbee's the naming as  
stated in: http://vtiger.fosslabs.com/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/wiki/ 
is enough, I would suggest adding a wiki page for the newbee's who  
doesn't know what to download instead.

Best regards,
