Re: Skip version number for next CbB release...
That number is just a minor version designation. The version of Chrome I'm using today is 70.0.3538.77. Those numbers just reflect a historical sequence, nothing else. If there is a Cakewalk release every month, then the minor version number will just happen to match up to the month of release.
But BL is not on a predetermined release schedule. That's a good thing. It means you get the release when it's ready, which is what we all want. They just like to get bug fixes out as soon as possible, which is why releases have been coming along at a (mostly) steady rate.
All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to. My Stuff
