1.4 & 1.5 series are the old stable and are patched ONLY for security 
issues. 1.6 receives language updates when we have patches for it.

The debian packager can still provide languages patches for 1.5 though, 
but that's not something the MediaWiki developers do :)

I made a discovery today.  I found a computer.  Wait a second, this is
cool.  It does what I want it to.  If it makes a mistake, it's because I
screwed it up.  Not because it doesn't like me... -- The Mentor, 1986
