I'll remake the images based on the available wiki FAQs dates. Wait for it.

Karan, I take your mail to home ... I'll try to display these ideas.

Due the release timeline ... could we predict which will be the last
release/update number of each major version ? Maybe a timeline could
reflect in a more simple and clear way where people are ... something
like:

        Full Updates: --------|--------|--------|--------|--------|-------|
                             5.0      5.1      5.2      5.3      5.4     5.5

Maintainance Updates:
--------|--------|--------|--------|--------|-------|-------|-------|-------|-------|
                             5.0      5.1      5.2      5.3      5.4
  5.5     5.6     5.7     5.8     5.9

where 5.5 is the last Full Update, and 5.9 the last Maintainance Update.

Thanks,
al.
