-Version numbers scheme:
+Version number scheme:
- <li>first number: major release number
- <li>secondary number: stable/development indicator
- <li>third number: subversions of releases
+ <li>first number: <b>major</b> release number
+ <li>secondary number: <b>minor</b> release number (stable/development indicator)
+ <li>third number: <b>revision</b>
+Using this scheme, version numbers have a very clear meaning:
+ <li>new revision == bugs have been fixed, go grab it and install it.
+ <li>new minor == new features are available, source compatibility _and_ binary 
+       compatibility for existing applications are garanteed <i>[not fully true for 
+       GRASS 5.7 where old vector/sites maps have to be converted by 
+       v.convert/v.in.sites.]</i>.
+ <li>new major == beware! Old (ugly) libraries have been dropped. Database
+     compatibility has been broken, you have to migrate your database to the
+     new formats.
+It is intended to follow this scheme for upcoming GRASS releases.
