If I may weigh in, Adium and Apache serve two almost diametrically
opposed publics. People who download apache builds/sources are either
sysadmins, packagers and/or developers and therefore are likely to
understand multiple releases of the same product existing
concurrently, including a seemingly "older" release (1.4.4) being
"released" after a "newer" one (Apache 2.0). Adium users, on the
contrary, are most probably traditional Mac users who, not
necessarily underestimating them, only want to click on buttons and
open menus; in my opinion they are likely to be confused by this
"release disorder", as I think they'll see it. So based on that, I do
believe releasing Adium 1.0.5 after 1.1 doesn't make much sense....
for the likely Adium public at least.
Again, just my thoughts ;-)
