The update from 1.4 -> 1.5 should be fairly painless, it will be done as 
either an online update, or by running the install CD and choosing Upgrade.

Also, 1.4 should be supported with critical security updates for about 6 
months after the 1.5 release, but of course users can update to 1.5 and 
follow that branch for updates as well :)

Also, I don't think we had it written down on the web somewhere 
explaining this policy, I'll see if we can get that put down somewhere 
for you.
