 <h2>General information</h2>
-<b>Current version:</b>
-GRASS 5.0.2 (released 10 April 2003)
+There are now 3 GRASS branches:
+<li>5.0 (CVS repository "grass", branch "releasebranch_26_april_2002_5_0_0").
+<li>5.3 (CVS repository "grass", HEAD).
+<li>5.7 (CVS repository "grass51", HEAD).
+<b>5.0</b> is the stable branch, from which the various 5.0.x releases are
+derived. Future releases from this branch should contain only
+bug-fixes or minor, backward-compatible improvements. 5.0.3
+should be released quite soon.
+<b>5.3</b> is the development version of 5.0. It will include anything which
+is added to the 5.0 branch (although such changes will typically go
+into 5.3 initially, then get merged into the 5.0 branch later), plus
+some other changes which are too intrusive to go into the 5.3.x
+releases (e.g. because they break backwards compatibility, or
+introduce additional dependencies).
+<b>5.7</b> is the experimental version which was previously referred to as
+"5.1". See <a href=../grass51/index.html>related web pages</a>.
+<b>Current stable version:</b>
+GRASS 5.0.2 (released 10 April 2003), GRASS 5.0.2 is a bugfix release only.
