>> While that's generally true of Gnome projects, for GI an even minor number indicates only that it coincides with a general Gnome release. Everything is released off of the master branch; there's no reason for any release to be considered more stable. Regardless, the next general Gnome release is only a couple of weeks away and then you'll have an even minor number.
> Oh, thanks. I didn't realize that. The gnome-introspection port in MacPorts is setup to consider only even numbered minor versions as stable for all Gnome projects. Is this true for any other Gnome projects? Is there a list of which Gnome projects follow the odd=development even=stable model and which do not?
While not strictly Gnome, harfbuzz is another important dependency for the Gnome stack that doesn't adhere to the even-stable/odd-development rule. I don't for gtk-mac-integration or gtk-mac-bundler, either, though I've never done an odd-minor-number release for gtk-mac-integration. Neither is updated often so it seems silly. There are probably others that are released from master rather than having release branches, but afaik there's no list anywhere.
