I'm a new user of 0MQ, and it has taken a while for me to understand how the versioning system works. It was confusing at first, with people on the list bandying around terms that weren't familiar from my (albeit limited) experience with the software. I'd support Pieter's earlier comment about clear labelling.

Personally, I'd like to see a 'Which version should I use?' heading on http://www.zeromq.org/intro:read-the-manual just under 'Core Documentation', which just led to a page outlining the main development streams. A simple table would do, it doesn't need reams of text.

This is a fantastic project, by the way - I'm using 0MQ with pyzmq and gevent-zeromq.
