Well,.. that's what nearly each version naming model implies.
Of course those examples are different, however for all of them it is
supposed to use the newer versions if possible.

That's even true for different branches like Apache's http server. One
should probably only use the 1.x branch if using the 2.x is impossible
for some reason.
