What Happened to Discourse Version 2.9?

I’ll keep this topic brief, but I recently noticed that the next version of Discourse has been renamed from 2.9 to 3.0 (along with the “old” 3.0 being bumped up to 3.1). Is there a reason for why that happened?

Given we have 2 radical changes, we decided to do a major version bump.

  • Chat (which will be included in the Discourse source tree)
  • Sidebar + new user menu (radical change to the way Discourse looks)

Okay, that’s reasonable. Will 2.9 end up being a minor release? Does it just not exist anymore?

There will be no 2.9 release.
