"Monday, March 30, 2015
Python 3.5.0a3 has been released.   This is the third alpha release of Python 3.5, which will be the next major release of Python.  Python 3.5 is still under heavy development and is far from complete.”

3 alpha releases in 7 weeks…

On a more serious note though, h5py 2.5.x in the subject would be perfectly clear enough,
I think, and also help to distinguish from pytables releases.
