[Webtest] Canoo release number

The main consideration is how different will canoo-webtest be after say 3
months or 6 months from now if we download it today. 

By following the standard convention of major/minor releases, we have a
better idea. If the major version # changes after 3 months, we know that we
have to upgrade immediately. If the differences is just a few point releases
away, there may not be an immediate need to upgrade.

Siegfried actually sums it correctly.
1) Everyone uses a different build. 
2) Not knowing the difference between builds. Major/Minor versions tells us
the severity of changes between builds.

Hope this helps,

Hi folks,

maybe we should ask the question the other way around?! What are the
disadvantages of the current release system?!

+) Everyone uses a different build of Canoo WebTest depending on the time of
the last download.

+) What has changed between two builds?!

+) What are the exact versions of the required JARs ... welcome the JAR hell
... :-)

I'm my humble opinion there is nothing wrong with the daily build but it is
not perfect either.

PS: Did I tell you that Maven could be integrated into CruiseControl ... :-)
