Well, I don't know.... (but perhaps I am too much developer...grin). For me,
version numbers indicate technical progress. You can't just make more versions
w/o implementing new/important features.

On the other hand, 'release often' is not bad. Perhaps a different snapshot
approach would be nice - like the weekly snapshots we had in earlier days?!
IMHO we should have just more apps - *this* would attract people!

This is important! Thus GNUstep.net should really get a facelift and more
activity (well, that's my optinion...grin). Perhaps sb knows a graphician who
would like to volunteer? Maybe sb knows folks who would like to write articles
