Quoting blender.org:
Betas 2, 3 and 4 will add additional UI features, alongside further tool development, leading up to 
a fully stabilised and production ready Blender 2.6 release in mid 2010.

AFAIK there will no stable 2.50, because this is a development version of blender (like Linux 2.3). 
But the blender developers said they want to have 2.60 (which will be the next stable release) at 
the next SIGGRAPH (which is somewhen in the summer).
