Subject Re: [SCXML] Next major version number required package rename needed?
Date Fri, 11 Oct 2013 01:02:57 GMT
The dots aren't decimal separators and version numbers are not true
numbers. 0.9 goes to 0.10 goes to 0.11, etc. If they were true decimal
numbers, you couldn't have more than one dot.

0.9 to 1.0 is a major version jump. However, 0.X usually indicates
pre-release quality (i.e., not ready for production yet).
