in the last few weeks, there were some bugs in 1.5svn which could lead 
to data lost.

if somebody does not know how to react he or she may screw the documents 
and loose many hours of work.

you know how to work with (i hope so!), most people on this list don't.

1.3.9 is currently probably almost as stable as but there are 
good reasons to stick to, too.
