no, afaik, it's on purpose. there is no release in the development 
branch 1.5.x, yet.

imo, 1.5.0 should be released as soon as the undo for text is ported to 
the 1.5svn branch (and this will very likely happen in the next couple 
of months thanks to the GSOC by chelen):
until that point 1.5svn is -- in my eyes -- to be considered inferior to 
1.4.1 and not stable enough to be used by a wider public.
