Basically the reason is that due to the way we've been conditioned people expect version 1.0 to be an "official" type of release. People also tend to get a little weird if you go to .10, since it appears to be less than .9. As such the next release is .A as a different route than either of those two.

By the way, what about 0.A name?
Nothing has been discussed in that front and I am curious about that.
Read the *official* release checklist:
Code: [Select]
[kevin@laptop-dell-kevin Cataclysm-DDA]$ cat doc/RELEASE_CHECKLIST
Come up with a release name at the absolute last second.
Update VERSION in Makefile and version.cpp for MSVC and C::B builds.
Bring changelog up to date if necessary.
Update MOTD.
Tag release.
Commit above (to trigger jenkins builds).
Sanity test jenkins builds.
Upload builds to github release page.
Post release thread in forum.

Lol at the release name.
