I agree.

I think the dissonance between what TDF calls a milestone and what the reviewers see stems from their different view points. For the devs it's a milestone as it drastically improves the code base. The user-visible changes are rather secondary to that.

For what it's worth, the reason for the bump in version number is that they removed a lot of old APIs. It's all documented here:
