The reason for the increase is the addition
of MUiFactory.createImperativeExpression(). I'm not convinced though that
MUiFactory is intended to be implemented by clients (only then the major
version needs to be increased). An e4 expert has to comment on that.
Unfortunately, this change is in our
repositories since March 1, so, decreasing the version now can also do
harm to people and repositories. At any rate, before even considering that,
we need to know whether MUiFactory is intended to be implemented by clients
and if so, whether there's another way than adding a new method to it.
