My recommendation is to use semantic versioning and stick with it:

* x.y.z
* z = bug fixes only
* y = any new features or changes to existing features
* x = any backward compatibility loss in APIs / usage of the product

With that said, whatever approach is used, let's make clear guidelines and
stick with it.

The biggest advantage of sticking with semantic versioning is it's
wide-spread use in the industry, with maven, and in the open source
community.  For example, IIUC, maven will allow a dependency upgrade at the
minor version level but not at the major version level (when there are two
dependency chains leading to different versions of the same artifact).
