   I am confused about guile versions.  I have installed 1.6 thinking it
   was the latest stable one.  If features are still being added to 1.4,
   what is 1.5 and 1.6 for?

i "cvs update" from 1.6 (and from HEAD, fwiw) every once in a while to
see if interesting bugfixes, documentation and new features show up (the
cvs commits mailing list seems to have been suspended indefinitely since
savannah was cracked a few months ago), and update 1.4.x w/ the tasty
bits that i find, when i find time to do so.

other people accept those versions as-is for their own reasons.  i don't
speak for them, although strangely enough, sometimes they like to speak
for me.  it can be very confusing at first glance, i agree.  best thing
to do is figure out what features you like and then find and/or build
the system that supports those features.  version numbers are labels,
useful at times but subject to misapplication and misinterpretation.
likewise the word "stable".  perhaps you know all this already.
