But they aren't similar. There was Mozilla 1.4.1 for bugfixes. Mozilla
1.5 is so named because it has new features.

(Linux sometimes does put new features into 2.4.x releases. But that
seems like a weakness, not a strength. With Mozilla, you know that 1.5
has new features relative to 1.4, and that 1.4.1 has only bugfixes
relative to 1.4.)
