Just a very general remark: when I clicked the above link I was confused
by coming to a download page that offered me a 1.0.0 version while this
append just spoke about a version 0.4 only. Only in the comment column I
discovered the remarks "i4 stable build" or "i3 stable build".

To avoid such confusion and stay with the usual eclipse parlour, it
might be helpful to name (and then speak about) such versions as
"version x.y.zMn[-optionally-with-date]" (where n is the milestone
number), i.e. here e.g.: v1.0.0M4. Seeing such a file or download
everybody being mildly familiar with eclipse habits is immediately
aware, that this is a beta or preview version and not the final v1.0.0.

Just my 2 cents of wisdom...

Just after I had written my prior append I stumbled over the COSMOS
Release Plan
( http://wiki.eclipse.org/Cosmos_Release_Plan#Release_Mileston es).
Apparently v0.4 isn't a milestone, yet, but only an iteration (the last
before milestone 1).
For iterations "eclipse" uses an 'I' instead of 'M', i.e. the version
name would thus be v1.0.0I4[-<date>].

Consider my prior append rephrased accordingly...

Thanks for the feedback, Michael. Version numbering can be tricky.
After a project has passed the 1.0 version point, the milestones are
named for the release they are approaching. However, the guidelines are
different and less clear before the 1.0 point.

We have decided on the following convention, for better or for worse:
before we get to release 1.0, we will name the releases 0.i, where "i"
is the associated iteration number. Therefore, in this case, we can use
i4, Milestone 1, and Release 0.4 interchangeably. We do need to update
the download page to make it more obvious which download link
corresponds to release 0.4. In the first post in this thread, "version
listed is 1.0.0-200706281537" was supposed to indicate which link to
choose, but if we had it better marked on the page itself, that would
help further eliminate the ambiguity.
