i *think* we are still using the v.ri model (version-release-increment), and currently 2.52 is in trunk. Thus, technically, the first non-beta version released with will be 2.60 as a full release number. However, most people always get the latest release, which is the truncated v.ri to commonly be referred to as 2.6

Thank, that's how I interpreted it but, given that the current version is 2.49 it seems that this trend is new so I wanted to see if there are *official* words from Ton or others about the shift in using the Linux kernel version model.
At this point it become important to know for sure so that books and tutorials can be labeled correctly.
