1.5 is "Release Candidate 2" though, so isn't only just a beta version presently?
 Nevermind, answered my own question...
This may not be the final release of our Web browser; it has been made available for testing purposes only
, with no end-user support.

Eg, i just downloaded firefox from the link you posted above and once i downloaded it i got this msg: Note: Firefox 1.5 Beta 2 is NOT THE FINAL RELEASE VERSION of Firefox 1.5, it has been made available for testing purposes, with no end-user support. If you do not traditionally use beta software we recommend that you use the latest version of Firefox 1.0
So i do believe its still in beta. just fyi
