In my opinion it would not be necessary to bump the version number
just for new distribution packages.

Only if you expect the next big bug warranting a new release to be
round the corner as well.

Then we should try to get some features done before that.  Currently
there haven't been enough changes to warrant a new release.  I am
thinking about the style system changes and the functionality for
accessing TeX-related documentation.

By the way, yesterday I had the idea to use the information from the
parser to find the LaTeX package a certain command belongs to and use
that to open the corresponding documentation.  Not as good as a real
command database with included documentation, but helpful anyway.

Maybe use checkinstall?
