The minor dot releases to Firefox were purely security fixes that as far 
as I'm concerned are necessary, there are no new features in these minor 
releases. The changing of the name of the next FF release to 1.1 -> 1.5 
is purely due to the fact they have taken more features than was 
originally planned (Whether or not this is a good idea remains to be 
seen), it is exactly the same as Wordpress 1.3 actually being released 
as 1.5.

As far as I'm concerned a minor feature release of 1.5.2 is a good thing 
especially if a full security audit is performed with it.
