...only 621 more versions to go

I know it's tongue in cheek, but for those missing the snark:


This isn't how this works.

Version 4.3, now being "the stable branch", will no longer receive feature additions (it may still receive patches).

We've already begun working on version 4.4, which is now "the experimental branch".


By the time that it's time for a new PE release, we may have advanced the version count to 4.5, or 4.6 even.

4.499 could be followed by 4.4100. It hasn't happened in the last 20 years; typically we stop between the high 50s and mid 70s. Still, just because the counter reaches 99 doesn't mean it couldn't go to 100, 200, 900 even.


- there's no law that we must go through 4.5, 4.6, 4.7, 4.8, and 4.9 to reach 5.0

- there's no law that you will ever see 5.0; may well be that, to mature enough for a public PE release, it'll take until 5.2 or 5.3.
