Mahara creates 2 major releases per year (April: XX.04.0, and October: XX.10.0). We also create 'minor point' releases when we need to add urgent fixes and security updates (e.g. XX.04.1, XX.04.2 etc). Doing minor point releases is slightly different to doing a major release. On a major release, we apply any security and bug fixes that are included in the release as a minor point update to other supported versions. Minor point releases are for security fixes or urgent bug fixes - these happen between major releases.
