1.2 seems fine to me. I don't think people really care as long as new
release number > old release number. Skipping version numbers may make
developers feel better, but it leaves users scratching their heads about
where 1.2-1.4 went.
Also, 1.5 could be interpreted to mean halfway to .NET 2.0, which is in
no way accurate.
Don't switch horses mid-stream. ;)
