Right now, the main difference is that 1.5.0 uses the gtkhtml
widget, instead of the gtkxmhtml widget. From a user perspective,
the difference is that the report and help windows will look a
bit different, and you can now print them directly using a toolbar

Also, check printing was disabled for 1.4, since it depends on the
gnome-print library which is not standard with most distributions.
The 1.5 series depends on gnome-print and has check printing.

As time goes by, the 1.5 series will add more features and will change
some internal infrastructure, while 1.4 will only have bug fixes.
