I think the firefox/OOo version jumps are the surprises here.  We've 
come to expect boring consistency with few feature changes across minor 
updates.  I think it is a great thing for the desktop apps to change 
faster than the base os and server apps, but it seems like an upstream 
policy change especially for the big jump in firefox.
