For consumer platforms 1150 is the more recent (launched 2013) v. 1155 (launched 2011), per:

edit to add:
For similar queries on other devices/technologies, a search engine query like this may prove helpful:
[ intel cpu socket timeline ]

e.g. [ manufacturer device devicespecification (deviceattribute)* timeline ]

*(deviceattribute) is optional (e.g. manufacture, development, end-of-life, price, etc)

Some other considerations some people may tend to associate with pin counts...
One must also keep in mind that the number of pins a cpu has doesn't necessarily mean one processor for sale is more recent design than another. For example, you may see a processor on sale with X pins built with a 90nm process and a newer technology processor with X pins but built with a newer 45nm process. So, just relying on pin count alone won't guarantee it is a more recent technology than some other processors. One must also keep in mind that a socket with X pins doesn't guarantee the motherboard can handle all processors made with X pins. One X pins processor may consume 125Watts while another X pin processor may consume 45Watts. So be sure to also look at mother specs when selecting a processor based on socket family/pin-count.
