Hallo Arnulf,

da Versionsnummern ja realistisch betrachtet hauptsächlich der 
eindeutigen Unterscheidung dienen,
bin ich auch für eine eindeutige Regelung, das spräche für Mapbender 
Version 2.4.

Das dann nicht vorhandene Release 2.3 würde dann sozusagen als 
"Development Version" verschwinden,
vgl. UMN Mapserver Versionen 3.7,4.3, 4.5, 4.7.

Vielleicht sollte man generell bei neuen Releases, die auch mehr 
Funktionalität bringen auf diese
Verisonierung springen, so daß die X.X.X-Versionen nur Bugfixes, aber 
keine neuen Module mehr enthalten.
Das wäre an dieser Stelle dann konsequent.

And now in english:
Versioning is up to my mind in general useful when seperating different 
versions. So I think a clear arrangement will help all,
this speaks in favor of version 2.4.

The then not released release (;-)) 2.3 would disappear as a development 
version, comparable with the UMN Mapserver
versions 3.7,4.3,4.5,4.7

I think in genereal we should go this way: If a release has new 
functions and modules, we give a new number like 2.5,2.6, etc.
If the reelase only has bugfixes, but no new modules, we can add a 
X.X.number. This would be a clear way.

Till ;-)
