    It's also worth to mention...

    "On 21 July 2011 Linus Torvalds announced the release of Linux
3.0: "Gone are the 2.6.<bignum> days". The version bump is not about
major technological changes when compared to Linux 2.6.39; it marks
the kernel's 20th anniversary. The time-based release process remained
the same."
