With 0MQ's unconventional versioning, there are multiple x.y.z
versions before the first stable release (in this case 2.1.3). I
would not expect
the API-freeze statement to apply to pre-release versions. For
instance, 2.1.1 introduced new socket types (XPUB/XSUB) and 3 socket
options that were not in 2.1.0, and I think that's fine, because those
were not stable releases.
