Hum I see. I guess it becomes so clear for all of us that the definition 
is implicit. If you are familiar with the linux kernel dvpt you would 
know why it is so. Even number = stable release, odd number = unstable. 
Therefore all release are even:
VTK 3.2, 4.0, 4.2, 4.4, 5.0
And unstable are:
VTK 4.5, 5.1

The current VTK CVS is indeed 5.1. Therefore when VTK 5.2 comes out it 
will be the stable version of 5.1 ...

Hopefully someone at Creatis will do it.

Ps: Well it becomes nasty when you know that Creatis is using a GDCM 
1.3, but I am not maintaining it and this was done without my 
acknowledgment :(
