Minor numbers are update revisions. When 4.5 is released, and you run
'yum update' on 4.4, you'll get 4.5.

4.5 is 4.x + bug/security fixes to that point. The lifespan for
centos4 is 7 years.  During that time, you'll have 4.0 thru 4.18 or
whatever the final minor point revision ends up being.

Basically yes, you want this upgrade.
