I don't remember other projects that did this strategy; perhaps that in itself is a sign since they are so unremarkable. I am sure some of you may help me here.
One the best examples of what constitutes major release for Joe Average is Turbo Pascal. It was a time when OOP was all the rage and C++ was hot. Turbo Pascal introduced objects, inheritance and other such stuff, too. Between version 5 and 6. Note: I said between. Version 6 was a major release - with blue background, movable windows and so on. You know: major. While version 5.5 only introduced "insignificant" changes: the whole OOP paradigm in a compiler itself.
Note that is compiler so of course it's users are more computer-savvy than LibreOffice users.
