The other standard comment on this is to
use the data on past behaviour, like a good
statistician. Stata was first released
in 1985 and so averages about 2.5 years between
major releases (marked by integers). At the same time,
knowing an average is, as we all know, insufficient
for accurate prediction, especially as we are not looking
at a stationary process here.
A while back (in the late days of version 7, I believe), I tried to model major release dates in terms of changes in the frequency of interim updates. I got basically nowhere; but then again I'm not a time-series guy.

(And yes, this was when I was procrastinating on my dissertation...)
