Version numbers question


I am wondering why it appears that GCC has started drastically raising its
major version number for minor changes, instead of spending several years
on version 3 and 4. 4.0.1, 4.1.1 and 4.12, 4.2.3, 4.3.2, 4.4.5, up through
4.7.0, 4.7.1, 4.7.2, the 4.8 and 4.9 releases, then version 5.1 and
talking about version 6. Little changes should be reflected in minor
version and bugfix numbers, not major version jumps.
