Why do you think this should be confusing?

Just a small correction: there is no, only 0.9.29.

The point is that many bugs have been fixed in the development version, 
but no new stable version could be released yet, because the developers 
waited for the release of FPC 2.4.2 (FPC 2.4.0 contained some bugs and 
thus wasn't suitable for a new release of Lazarus).
With the new release of FPC out in the wild I now hope that the 
developers will do a new release (0.9.30) in the near future :)
