Xdg-desktop-portal-gtk versioning scheme change

With the latest 1.15.0 release, the “reference” GTK portal implementation, xdg-desktop-portal-gtk has changed its versioning scheme from the previous even/odd one.

The new scheme is made of monotonically increasing numbers:

  • major, incremented for backward compatibility breaking changes
  • minor, incremented for changes in dependencies and exposed interfaces
  • micro, incremented for bug fixes

This impacts the current security policy as well:

  • the current stable series is 1.15.x
  • the old stable series is 1.14.x

Only these two series will see security fixes. We recommend downstream distributions to use versions from the 1.15.x series.
