It may look like the decision was made up at T3BOARD in the mountains -
but it was certainly not. We thought about lots of different
alternatives (also the one above) but we chose this one out of many.

I don't quite get why you and a few others have such a big problem with
that version number being left out.

I've seen the example of Apple MacOS at least once (by Mathias) in this
thread. Now have a look at Wikipedia and see how Apple skipped 3.2
before releasing 3.3: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_versioning

There are quite some other nice examples of products mentioned on this
page, I recommend reading it.

My conclusion is that it will be a lot easier for all of us to accept
that a version is skipped rather than explaining an interested customer
the Ubuntu naming scheme, or why TYPO3 5.0 is something different than
what we talked about for the last five years...
