Each release (down to the possibly daily changes of the "rolling" release at https://software-lab.de/picoLisp.tgz) tries to be backwards compatible with previous versions ... except for bug fixes of course, and strategic changes (seldom, usually discussed in IRC in #picolisp). The discrete versions like 16.12 are not special in any way. They are just snapshots of the rolling release, to be released as Debian packages. The number components have no significance, they denote year and month. ♪♫ Alex -- UNSUBSCRIBE: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org?subject=Unsubscribe
