Hi Tiemo,

 From LiveCode 9 onwards, we will use a simplified numbering scheme:

- If we add anything new or make any backward-incompatible change: 
increment first number, reset second number to 0

- If we fix bugs in a backwards-compatible way: keep first number, increment
second number

I explained this in the blog post that I wrote about the LiveCode 9 DP 1

The new features in LiveCode 9 will include Infinite LiveCode capability,
with _at least_ the ability to integrate LCB code directly with Java
libraries (such as Android APIs).
