Semantically, version numbering is what it is.

Nevertheless, there is a perception of progress associated
with it that is subjective. I think those close to lynx find
the progress apparent and clear when it happens -- I'm one
of them.

I don't pretend to know who might not find the progress so
apparent, but I would not ignore that possibility.
