OMV5 has NOT been released, or did you see an official announcement of the homepage? Sourceforge simply shows the latest uploaded file, that's all.
I know but on the other hand I understand why people are confused. No offence (as I really like your work), but you have to improve your communication.
On openmediavault.org there is absolutely no info about what version(s) are up to date. On the news page there is a OMV 6 teaser and some 4.1 news. Aside from that NOTHING ... no info. People who are used to the debian 'testing - stable - oldstable' scheme must think that OMV 5 is the most recent production version.
When you then visit the official download page (sourceforge.net/projects/openmediavault/files/) OMV 5.0.5 is the newest version that is not marked as beta. I understand why you want to wait for the release of Debian 10.1 but I really don't understand why you didn't append 'beta' to 5.0.5 when OMV5 is not officially released yet.
The result is - as you can see - that the 'unreleased' 5.0.5 has way more downloads than 4.1.22. The only place where OMV 5 is clearly marked as 'under development' is the Forum.
I'm not sure whether this confusion is even intended to attract more testers. In any case, that's what happens right now.
