Yeah, this confused me too. I was expecting 3.1 to be 3.1, not 3.1.0. I think
that there have been some complaints about software breaking because of it
relying on three version numbers, so perhaps they're just going to add the third
.0 after all... oh well, that's probably the easiest thing anyway.
