The first thing to do is to find out what [whoever] means by "current edition".

-- the current edition of Fb 1.5 is Fb 1.5.5
-- the current edition of Fb 2.0 is 2.0.4, with 2.0.5 currently in pre-release field-testing
-- the current edition of Fb 2.1 is 2.1.1

The step from Fb 1.5.2 to Fb 2.0.x is much more radical than from 1.5.2 to 1.5.5 and can easily break applications.

Don't do anything until you know exactly what you are meant to be installing.
