there are people around who do not want to jump to 1.0 they would like to jump to 0.91 as inkscape did! Never forget about them because all this would be possible from 0.91 too.
In terms of Semantic Versioning, the "." in version number is not decimal point (but as separate point), and version number is not math number. As math number, "0.1","0.10"and "0.100" are same value. But as version number, they are quite different.
In version number "0.100", major version number "0" and minor verison number "100" (one hundred) are integers connected with "." (as separate point). It is not math carry relation between them, so no matter how many increments of minor number won't help raising major number.
In history, FreeCAD arrived at v0.9. After that, the following version was v0.10, not v1.0. So, in the future, following 0.99/0.999 might be 0.100/0.1000, so long as the conditions of major version increment has not been satisfied. If finnaly we reached 0.100 from 0.91, do you think another jump to 0.911 is needed?
I understand and appriciate your passion. I donnot object minor version jump, just feel it not as meaningful as it seems. Sorry.
