The "tradition" seems to be that there will be one last bug fix release
after a feature release is made; IOW, two branches are always maintained
(the trunk and the last release). Following this tradition, there
wouldn't be another 2.4.x release (and I think Anthony already said so).
Likewise, 2.5. will be maintained until 2.6 is released, and one last
2.5.x release will be made shortly after 2.6.
