bubble bursting version numbers
With all due respect,
is the most ridiculous version number jump i have seen i a while. Yahoo just released a new version of their Yahoo! UI Library and pull this little marketing trick.
This is even more extreme than in the good old new economy times when marketing geniuses where pushing their fail-ups towards their IPOs.
Don't get me wrong, YUI is a fine piece of work and the yuiblog a delighting source of inspiration. But no marketing blah-blah whatsoever will make me understand the reasoning behind going from below 1.0 to 2.2 in a single step. Get real, start at 1 please.
