As of the release of 2019 build 20072 we've started a new, shorter development cycle. Instead of one major yearly release we will deliver a release approximately every 4 months. This shorter cycle allows us to deliver value to you more consistently throughout the year. It's more predictable for us, meaning it's more stable for you. More features, more often.
Product Naming After Version 2019
Since we are no longer focusing on once-a-year major releases, the yearly naming scheme doesn't make sense anymore. We're changing it to be based on version numbers. The first release after 2019 will be v21. Four months after that, v22 will come out.
