"Andreas Jaeger, Program Manager at Novell for openSUSE, has
posted about an on-going discussion concerning the naming
convention of openSUSE. Apparently the traditional "old school"
11.4, 12.0, 12.1, etc. might need some modernization. Developers
and active users have suggested several alternatives.
"Jaeger explains that despite common belief openSUSE doesn't
actually employ major and minor number versioning. So to assume
that 11.4 is an update to 11.3 is incorrect."
