For dev tools, any sort of time-based or regularly-incremented versioning scheme can get in the sea. Looking at you, Node.js.

@Floppy Node is both time-based _and_ semver though. Only major versions have breaking changes, and features vs bug fixes decides minor or patch bump.

The schedule just regulates batching up of breaking changes, and which versions get backported fixes for how long. All semver compatible.

@pimterry well! TIL, thank you. That must mean there are a lot of breaking changes, but it makes sense if they batch it up that way.
