Default 1.3.3 -> 5.02?! What about 2.0, 3.0, 4.0? What happend to them?

I'm just curious how the version number of the firmwares can go from 1.3.3 to 5.02. It's a bit odd - what happened to 2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 4.02.. and 5.0 and 5.01?!

Nothing complicated, they just changed the version number from one arbitrary number to another one :)

Yes indeed we changed the numbering scheme so it is different than other SSD Manufacturers. We do not use the same build and as such our firmware may be based on a certain reference Firmware but modified for our BUILD. And the old numbering scheme was causing some confusion when a higher number firmware was being offered but actually or Firmware was based on a totally different reference version.
