Yep.  4.2 is a major new release, it's bound to take longer to package 
properly for all systems.  They may not want to release 4.2 only for some 
systems until it works on every distribution they support.

It's also possible they consider a .0 release not ready for enterprise 
use.  They may be waiting a couple of versions to make sure all of the 
early issues are ironed out.
