Same for Lazarus, although the numbering is different.
There is always a svn branch "fixes", while the svn "trunk" is the
development version. The fixes receives only bug fixes.
The release was 0.9.30. The development version was 0.9.31. Then came
several minor releases,3,4,5 with fixes.
Next version is 1.0 (fixes branch), development has version 1.1 (trunk).
