Why is it Lightroom 2015.x?

So the first couple of times in 2015 when they released an update I assumed it was because the update name started in 2015.

The latest releases seem like they must have begun in 2016. Why is Adobe still calling it 2015.x?

Is there a plan that 2016.x will denote a major release? Will there still BE major releases in CC; I thought one point was incremental development and deployment?

Not that this affects anything real, but it just seems a bit odd. Usually companies want year-containing names to be ahead, not behind, the calendar.

Linwood,
The logical explanation is that CC2015 is the major release name, and it will change to 2016 (or 2017 or whatever) to match the year in which the next major release of the perpetual version comes out. This naming scheme perhaps is an indicator that there is a next major release of the perpetual version in the pipe.
