The latter is true.

1.4 is just too old.  In future, it will be easier to maintain the stable
version, since we are now using development branches.  It goes along with
the new versioning system.  But, since no update releases to 1.4 will be
made, it is no use to submit patches for such a thing.

In any case, 1.6 is really close.  Even if there should be some bugs, you
can assume that no user visible changes to the interface are likely to
happen.  Thus, again, I'd say go for the CVS version of the upcoming 1.6
