Finally, the long awaited stable release of GDAL and OGR has been published. Current stable release number is 1.4.3. There is not much of magic of numerology behind this number and it just says it consists of 3rd iteration of patches to 1.4 stable release.
The official GDAL/OGR 1.4.3 announcement says:
