Isn't it. I can't imagine what the developers are smoking to get them so buzzed with quick version turnouts...
They're smoking from the Agile Development Framework [en.wikipedia.org] crack pipe.
It's a fantastic method of developing software that ensures rapid releases cycles and quickly escalating version numbers, generates massive consulting fees and developer bonuses for all involved, while relieving the developers and management team of any responsibility for long term architectural decisions, vision, or generating actually sustainable code.
It's a very specific variety of Kool-Aid popular in Dot-Com circles right now. A similar variety was last tested in Jonestown.
