Nothing changed in this area. Previously we had 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, ... 1.6 for
major release (the second number was bumped) and 1.x.1, 1.x.2, ... for
patch releases. The first number (1) was never changed so it was useless,
and was droped. We go from a 3-digit numbering scheme to a 2-digit, but it
doesn't change anything because one of the 3 digit was never changed
