Version numbers and release schedules
Barefoot versions consist of three numbers in the
format A.B.C. These numbers carry the following meaning:

The second number is increased for each major release. A major
release might introduce new features, behavior and include
changes to the syntax of the configuration files.
- x.x.C - Bug fix release
The third number is incremented for each bug fix release. These
releases contain mainly bug fixes to the corresponding major
