The previous versions of current (prior to "The Big Update") has been 
very stable on about 80 production critical servers for us. How about 
naming the 'current' prior to "The Big Update" Owl 1.2-stable (or 1.1.1 
stable or whatever), and bump the release number for Owl-current to 
"Owl-1.3_beta" or something similar.

Optionally, put the 1.1 binary compatible updates in 1.1_updates and 
stick with current for everything new, including the biggies, before 
bumping the release for that one.
