If it's too late to bump the version number for the upcoming release,
0.21 can be used for the release and the bump to 1.0 (1.22, ...) can
be done as part of post-release version increment.

My personal preference is 1.21 > 1.0 > 0.21 though. By the way, any
other ordering doesn't fit mathematically and is therefore wrong.
