     55=== What is the versioning scheme? ===
     56There are three fields in the version: `major.minor.micro`.
     57 * If the `major` is changing, you can break plugins. That means both forward- and backward- compatibility. API can be added or removed or whatever you like.
     58 * If only the `minor` is changing, you can break forward compatibility only. You may add API, but you can't remove it. You can mark API as deprecated instead.
     59 * If only the `micro` is changing, you can't break the API at all.
