Not per se but the snapshots for sometime were labeled as v1.0.  The v1.1 will
be a "Net Release", i.e.: You can use ftp to download it.  The next "Net
Release" after v1.1 will be v1.3 regardless of if v1.2 exists.  It will be
intended that version with odd minor release be the net release and version
with even minor release be the retail release.
