Why both BIND 8.3.0 and BIND 8.2.5?

Based on there being release candidates out for both 8.2.5 and 8.3.0, it
looks like the plan is to actually release both; is that correct?  If so,
why would you want to do that instead of just have 8.3.0 (I realize that
8.3.0 has 'new function', while 8.2.5 is just 'fixes'; but is the new
function so extensive or incomaptible that one might need to stick with the
8.2.x series instead of moving to 8.3.0?)?

My platform, IBM iSeries (aka AS/400), is currently at 8.2.3 and I would
like to upgrade it soon.  I guess I'm just looking into insight as to under
what conditions I would need to stick with 8.2.x instead of going to 8.3.0?

Thanks in advance for your help.
