      I was attempting to make things more clear with the numbering, so much for that I guess.  You can think of it as Linux kernel style.  Example, 2.4 and 2.6 are "stable" kernels.  2.5 is not a stable kernel and eventually became 2.6 (i think).  I'm not sure if I'll be following that method in the future, but the idea is to clearly delineate if you have a beta version installed by giving it its own separate number.  I don't want people confused thinking they are using 1.0 Final when it is actually an inferior 1.0 Beta.
