There's a bit of Captain Obvious in this post, but also, to bring home how close v3.0 is to those who aren't paying attention to the beta version, would the next release be the official, production version 3 for Windows, or is there a chance we may get into things like 2.9.9.9b and the like? ;-)

Yeah, there's nothing in the numbering scheme L&L uses that says any level of the version number is constrained to a single digit.

Yep, understood. My hopes are dashed. I am crestfallen.

At least they're using a base 10 counting system and not base 16:)

If you're interested in learning more about software versioning, the Semantic Versioning spec is kind of interesting and explains the meaning/implication of each number used by developers: https://semver.org/
