Not sure, in this case I'm not convinced an 11.0 release would be
required to support BOOLEAN, even with the fixed casts. I don't think
any real analysis was done of the potential impact to real applications.

It maybe also that the changes in the trunk drive the version number,
not the other way around. If someone contributes some feature that the
community believes requires the version change should happen, then the
trunk would be bumped to 11.0. Adding 11.0 now is just going to raise
questions of when is the 11.0 release compared to the 10.3 release, and
how do I develop for the 11.0 release if the next release is 10.3?

Dan.
