 for major release
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  major release
  
      A release of a piece of software which is not
     merely a revision or a bug fix release but which contains
     substantial changes (e.g., an overhaul of the interface,
     change in compatibility).
  
     Traditionally, major releases are numbered as X.0; for
     example, WordPerfect 6.0 is a major release, significantly
     different from any previous version; whereas WordPerfect 6.1
     has only minor changes, and is, thus, only a revision.
  
     See also major delivery.
