> 4.0 means a stable, final release 4.0.x means an update or bugfix of 4.0
4.1 means a beta that adds new features to 4.0, where the important
interfaces (i.e. lifecycle) are not broken. 4.2 is the stable release of
4.1. It is usually a little better than 4.0.x. 

Good, and simple enough for me to follow.  But then:

> 3.8b means a beta version of 3.7. 

Why isn't a beta version of 3.7 called 3.7b (instead of 3.8b).  So it would
go 3.7.1 --> 3.7.2 --> ... --> 3.7.15 (till its feature complete) 
--> 3.7a (loose ends) --> 3.7b (critical bug fixes) --> 3.8rc1 (i think i
can release it, but...oops) --> 3.8rc2 --> 3.8 (final==3.8rc2)? 

Of course i never did understand the solaris version numbers either...
