No, the first one is the stable one, the second is where we have our
development branch. (SVN trunk)

No. We are trying out maintaining a stable branch, as an exercise for
the real 1.2.0 stable release. We will follow GTK+ versioning scheme,
from then on, in which even minor versions means stable.

I would recommend using, to be honest, as we know there are a
number of crashers in We plan to keep supporting 1.1.5.x for a
while, making it quite stable.

Hope that clarifies a bit =)
