Versions are not actually very close.

On Debian I do know that I am often confused by thin commands, sometimes 
-T seems to be necessary and sometimes --thin-pool or I am just 
confused, I don't know.

Same with Grub2, it has been in 2.02beta for ages and was only recently 
released as 2.02 but I think years of development went into that.

Although I think I can stay they are quit headstrong as compared to 

But you can see that the versions are 3 years apart anyway...
