If I extrapolate for the last 12 months,
- 1.20a would have been 1.20.0 (2004-09-06)
- we would probably have a 1.20.1 (2004-10)
- 1.20b would have been 1.30.0 (2004-12-22)
- 1.21a would have been 1.40.0 (2005-02-04)
- we would have done a 1.40.1 and 1.40.2 (and maybe even 1.40.3)
- the next release would be 1.50.0

That gives us probably four "proper" releases a year and some bug
fixing releases inbetween.

I know that this doesn't look very stable, but we have some
developement and we should aim at fixing bugs faster.

Best regards
