Exactly that. Linux releases 3.0, 3.1, 3.2 while stable team gets third digit -
3.0.0, 3.0.1 and so on.

"I decided to just bite the bullet, and call the next version 3.0. It 
 will get released close enough to the 20-year mark, which is excuse 
 enough for me, although honestly, the real reason is just that I can 
 no longe rcomfortably count as high as 40.
...
 Now, my alpha-maleness sadly does not actually extend to all the 
 scripts and Makefile rules, so the kernel is fighting back, and is 
 calling itself 3.0.0-rc1. We'll have the usual 6-7 weeks to wrestle it 
 into submission, and get scripts etc cleaned up, and the final release 
 should be just "3.0". The -stable team can use the third number for 
 their versioning."
