Solid point, but Python is a poor example because it was hardly frequent—the more than 25-year old language has had three major versions, ever. As a language, it’s also a foundational consideration for an entire ecosystem, as opposed to selecting a library/API to integrate into a single project.
There’s also the question of why we care about being on the latest version? If you have a long-term maintenance project with a dependency that meets all of its existing requirements, there’s no intrinsic need to update it. Quality dependency management allows you to specify the version you desire, and only upgrade periodically, after an evaluation of any changes in requirements and the dependency itself.
Good food for thought.
