Description

New major version. I suspect the version number is just to remain in sync with the kernel, but I can't say yet for sure.

Change History (3)

I believe it's done this way to merge kernel API header changes into iproute2.

https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/network/iproute2/iproute2.git/tree/README?id=93d0d92f615a853fe5423d36e9a2ef2c1fee9e52
4. This package includes matching sanitized kernel headers because
   the build environment may not have up to date versions. See Makefile
   if you have special requirements and need to point at different
   kernel include files.

With that logic then, I assume that a new version of iproute2 is released for every new minor version of the kernel.
