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