1.2 seems fine to me.  I don't think people really care as long as new 
release number > old release number.  Skipping version numbers may make 
developers feel better, but it leaves users scratching their heads about 
where 1.2-1.4 went.

Also, 1.5 could be interpreted to mean halfway to .NET 2.0, which is in 
no way accurate.

Don't switch horses mid-stream.  ;)
