I would posit that you are too tentative with releases. Drop a 0.6 if
you've made a bunch of code changes. Nothing to be afraid of. If you
think that users not-in-the-know would get burned, then alter the web
page to list a "semi-stable" and "development" version (0.5 and 0.6

In the past, you've also suggested a 0.5.1 ... probably no reason for
that since you're pre-1.0 anyhow. Just bump to 0.6.

"release early, release often"

For myself, I drop a release once add'l functionality has been added.
This allows everybody to test it, rather than those who set up CVS and
pull a copy down.
