There is an entry in the faq about this, but:
Before 1.0: All kinds of mechanisms. Even with letters postfixed. (0.99.14c)
Starting with 1.0: Like linux.
First number : major version.
second number: odd if development, even if release (stable) branch.
third number : sequence number of the release in this branch.
So 1.1 -> working title for the development that will lead to 1.2.x series.
1.0.x -> releases for the "production" versions. Mostly bugfixes from
version to version, and compability enhancements.
